On last evening's The Daily Show, Jon Stewart reported that a study about global warming, funded in part by Tea Party backers/oilmen The Koch Brothers, found that, indeed, global warming exists.

Stewart noted that this should have been the lead story of the day. Stewart then shows us the lead story on just about every news show - the McRib is back. 

Stewart points out that the McRib is reintroduced every year, like a groundhog (hey! maybe the McRib is groundhog)?? That's not news, he says. Now, if the Shamrock Shake were to be sold year round, that would be news...

What do global warming and the McRib have in common? Only the demise of civilization as we know it. Watch here:
