- Late Night Antics March 6
After 12 years of U.S. troops in his country, Afghan President Hamid Karzai is less than thrilled with America. That's funny, said Jon Stewart on Wednesday night's Daily Show, since the U.S. has built 4,000 schools and 2,500 miles of road, upped life expectancy by 20 years — "great for Afghani Matlock," he quipped, in a joke that didn't quite connect — and quadrupled Afghanistan's economic output. More to the point, Karzai seems happy to accept bags of cash from the CIA. The problem, Stewart said, is that Karzai either has a short memory or a poor understanding of the word "war." It's funnier when Stewart explains it below. --Peter Weber
