The Daily Show has already spent some time mocking San Francisco's Happy Meal toy ban (in particular Lewis Black's tirade against our Nanny State legislating), which the Board of Supervisors passed last month with a veto-overriding majority of 8 votes. Well, now Supervisor Eric Mar posted something to Facebook about how he got interviewed for a whole segment on the show by Aasif Mandvi.
Mar, who originally sponsored the ban, seems genuinely proud and amused by this, and probably thinks he's being hip and stuff by having a sense of humor about it all. But doesn't he know that The Daily Show makes everyone they interview on these segments look like assholes? They didn't invite you on there because your idea was good, Eric! [via The Snitch]
