Daily Show, Colbert Report, and Easter

It looks like the Colbert Report had a story on the St. Paul Easter bunny caper. Has anyone seen a mention on the Daily Show? Any other comedy shows?

This is what is known as a "bleg" -- a blog writer begging for information from his readers.

Top 10 Us Government blunders in last 100 years:

Here's my list

1. The 16th amendment, authorizing the income tax (lump in here the whole 'progressive' tax structure that eventually followed)
2. Creation of the Federal Reserve (I'm counting this as a government-acquiesced event which put in place the machinery to devalue our currency)
3. The New Deal
4. Not pressing our advantage over the USSR at the end of WW2 which could have rid the world of the Bolsheviks and saved tens of millions of lives and unimaginable human suffering
5. The Great Society
6. Roe v. Wade
7. Woodrow Wilson's refusal to compromise on the Treaty of Versailles after World War I
8. The "War on Drugs"
9. Premature capitulation in Vietnam
10. Patriot Act

Jay Leno had a joke about it. It's been a few weeks, but it was something to the effect of, "St. Paul recently took down their Easter decorations in City Hall because they didn't want the religious association to offend anyone. Doesn't that seem a little ironic in a city called SAINT Paul!!!"
