Deep in the October

Or at least, for every three or four segments where I think Stewart goes off the rails, there's one where I think he gets it absolutely right. I've never been able to say that about Rick Sanchez.

Our Golden (a.k.a. "The Bingle"), however, isn't sharing the joy.

Our poor girl is having a very tough morning...
