In case you were wondering what was going on in Park City this weekend, when Mitt Romney met with some of his biggest fund-raisers, Jon Stewart and "The Daily Show" summarized and skewered the event.

Stewart, on Monday's show, noted that the entertainment at the event -- which gathered some 700 "bundlers" who had raisesd $250,000 each -- included Olympic ski jumpers going off a ramp into a pool of water.

"Are we sure they were Olympic ski jumpers and not just poor people being thrown off a mountain?" Stewart asked. "A retreat like this, it could get real Hunger Games-y real fast."

In the spirit of bipartisanship, Stewart also mocked the Obama campaign for setting up an event registry, encouraging people getting married to have their guests give campaign contributions.
