The Daily Show Comes to Austin By Ben Philpott • Feb 4, 2011 ShareTwitter Facebook Google+ Email The Daily Show with Jon Stewart made a stop in Texas a few weeks back to tape a story on the Texas House Speaker's race. The reason for the trip was the inclusion of some anti-semitic messages in the campaign to oust current Speaker Joe Straus, who is Jewish. The segment aired Thursday night. Austin's state Representative Elliott Naishtat, who's also Jewish, was interviewed for the story but sadly didn't make the final cut.
