God bless "The Daily Show." Only Jon Stewart can spin a segment on Orwellian government control into a maybe-not-so-sarcastic suggestion that we'd all be better off under the protection of Buffy Summers.

Discussing the many different kinds of pop culture older siblings who might best represent the American version of "Big Brother" on the Dec. 14 episode, Stewart touches on the good (Greg Brady, Rog Thomas ) and the bad (Fredo Corleone, Wayne Arnold).

He concludes that a sister is a better option, and he has one in mind.

Stewart whips out an incredibly unexpected scene from "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" Season 5 episode "Blood Ties," featuring Buffy (Sarah Michelle Gellar) laying into Glory (Clare Kramer).

"That's the kind of government even tea parties can get behind," he says, further nestling his way into our hearts forever.

Sarah Palin, consider this an open invitation to join us for a "Buffy" marathon.
