Moving on, Stewart focused on the candidates' favorite books. Several candidates named classics like To Kill a Mockingbird and ... The Reagan Diaries. But Wagner had something else in mind, naming her favorite bar, instead: her kitchen table.

Of course, Michael Steele didn't escape unscathed from Stewart's satire. Steele named War and Peace as his favorite book -- but went on to quote A Tale of Two Cities, "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times."

"Well, thanks for playing," Stewart said.
