But that was before Newt Gingrich came back from the bottom of the polls to win the South Carolina primary, in part by selling himself as a Washington "outsider" and a former small business owner, a neat trick that leaves Stewart amazed. "Your small business is selling access to the inside of Washington," he cried. "When Washington gets its prostate checked, it tickles you." Watch Stewart on the "Gingrich who stole South Carolina" below.
