America needs a hero. Tonight Jon Stewart was surprised to find that John McCain has ended up being that hero, for his recent surprise trip to Syria, showing an action video with McCain’s face edited in to really sell it. After poking fun at Anderson Cooper for his comment on different “flavors” of Syrian rebels, Stewart took McCain to task for just knowing in his gut who the Syrian rebels “on our side” are, when it turns out that McCain posed for a photo with rebels involved in a high-profile kidnapping case.

Stewart first couldn’t help but raise an eyebrow at McCain’s remark that he’ll “die sometime, but it’s gonna be in bed.” Stewart added, “Maybe with a surge of Malaysian white tiger heroin.” But regarding McCain’s innate ability to tell the good guys from the bad guys, it turns out that McCain had a photo op with two men who were involved in a kidnapping. Stewart said, “Oh my God, John McCain is literally palling around with terrorists!”
