Musharraf On The Daily Show: Twinkies, Tea and Softballs

Jon Stewart’s interview with Pakistan’s president was cute and funny. It would have been more substantive, however, if Stewart had set aside some of the easier questions and actually put Musharraf into a real “Seat of Heat.”
Musharraf is a military dictator who staged a coup in 1999 and changed the Pakistani constitution to stay in power. His visit to the US is largely based around a book tour.
Stewart should have tabled the lobs and cribbed from the last three paragraphs of a recent Harry Shearer blog post, but I doubt such questions would have gotten as many laughs as Twinkies and jasmine tea.
