It's really a bummer that the Daily Show and the Colbert Report are off the air as a result of the writers' strike (although the good news is that they will be back on the air January 7th--the day before the New Hampshire primary). It would be great to have their colorful commentary on the candidates in the last hours before the Iowa Caucuses.
Alas, it is not to be. However, I was able to find Daily Show footage from the night of the 2004 presidential caucuses in Iowa.
Hilarious commentary on the 2004 Democratic presidential hopefuls
Meanwhile, Mark Fiore has put together a fun flash cartoon "the Night Before Caucuses" that parodies the 2008 Republican presidential hopefuls
