The Daily Show with Jon Stewart had a field day Thursday with this week's GOP debate on CNBC. The comedian dubbed Gov. Rick Perry's debate flub "the Dope Diamond." That's right before he unleashed team coverage of the governor's "brain explosive diarrhea" — and the unintended consequences for excited "newsmen."

The result was pretty epic, even by political comedy standards.

"It's like his brain was wearing white pants!" exclaimed correspondent Wyatt Cenac, before a fake backdrop of Austin. 

What more can we say? Just watch the two segments below but be forewarned: It's not for the delicate.

Part 1: Stewart calls the race and explains how Perry gave a starving comedian "53 seconds that can change his life."
