New York (and Lewis Black) Tear Down Texas on the Daily Show

Posted By on Thu, Jul 18, 2013 at 4:14 PM

Now, I'm not one to get in the middle of fights (apparently I just start them) but this love letter from The Daily Show's Lewis Black to Texas is just too damn good to pass up.

The backstory: Apparently, Texas Gov. Rick Perry is blasting ads all over the country, telling businesses to pull up stakes in whatever supposedly-crappy state they're currently in and come down to Texas, "while they still can."

New Yorkers are taking issue with that...hence, this response from Lewis Black. Note, the language is NSFW — as are the oft-raised middle fingers throughout.
