Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake: Steve Granitz/

As we predicted, no one is more sorry to see Herman Cain suspend his presidential campaign than Jon Stewart, who, as the host of The Daily Show, didn’t see Cain as a candidate, but as a steak. “Who does that?” Stewart said, gleefully, after showing a clip of Herman rolling up in his bus after he was already introduced for his speech. “See that is the beauty of Herman Cain. You don’t know if they planned this, or if he was late. ‘Oh s—, they just said my name. Gas it!'” The clip below also includes a montage of the Daily Show writers’ reactions to losing their muse, and Stewart’s take on Cain bowing out by using the “greatest nine words ever spoken by an American politician”: “I believe these words came from the Pokémon movie.” He also suggests other quotes from the Pokémon movie that would have been more inspirational and fitting. Not to be missed.
