Samantha Bee, one of the longest serving correspondents on “The Daily Show,” has officially departed, and the show and host Jon Stewartplayed tribute to her last night with a montage of her greatest hits, including the time she went to the Republican National Convention in 2008 and got a whole bunch of people to say they were glad Bristol Palin had had the option to keep her baby. So basically, they were pro-choice. We’ll miss Bee (and some of us wouldn’t have minded if she’d taken over), but she’s not going too far: She’ll soon be hosting her own show on TBS, and she and husband Jason Jones are executive producing a sitcom based on their life that he’ll star in. Watch the whole montage below, and try not to get all choked up when a teary Bee comes out, but is too emotional to say anything.
