The Daily Show with Jon Stewart has responded to the Say Yes to the Dress and other female-focused low-hanging fruit political campaign parodies with some help from Senior Women's Issues Correspondent Kristen Schaal. In the segment above, the comedian explains that "Women don't see candidates as potential leaders! We see them as possible soul mates, and Republicans are finally running ads to reflect that." Mini-parodies follow, like The Candidate reality show, and an online dating profile commercial where an innocent women gets fooled by a fellow named Obama's profile. The way to a woman's heart, and therefore her vote? Wedding dresses, reality TV, and muscles—obviously.
