Sen. Barack Obama appeared last night, yes, on nearly every major channel in prime time, but also on The Daily Show (“not a swing show, if you will,” per Jon Stewart) where he worked in a little dig at Fox News.

STEWART: So much of this has been about fear of you…Do you think any of this has stuck with the electorate?

OBAMA: It just hasn’t. There are certain segments of hardcore Sean Hannity fans that pobably wouldn’t want to go have a beer with me…

Stewart asked Obama about the Bradley Effect:

OBAMA: We’re still here, so I don’t think white voters have gotten this memo about the Bradley Effect…

STEWART: You mother is from Kansas, a white woman. Your father is African…Are you concerned that you may go into the voting booth and your white half will all of a sudden decide, ‘I can’t do this…’

OBAMA: It’s a problem…
