Best Stacey Campfield Comparison 

The Daily Show

Writers Choice

If wack politicians from our otherwise mostly fair state of Tennessee are going to keep turning up on Comedy Central as joke-butts, then at least let the jokes be good, right? And so when Daily Show host Jon Stewart shone his satirical light on us once more in April, we were crestfallen as usual. Campfield had just proposed tying food stamp benefits to grades — effectively starving poor kids for not doing well in school. “Is Stacey Campfield a state senator,” Stewart asked wryly, “or a villain from a Dickens novel?” It was the best of times.
