"This is an American delicacy. We call it a 'twinkie.'"

Jon Stewart interviewed Pervez Musharraf and gave him a twinkie. "Now, where is Osama bin Laden?"

The fact that Comedy Central can land an interview with the president of Pakistan is proof that the network plays a solid role in American politics. Young people who don't recognize the names of network anchors watch The Daily Show, and it's a primary source of political knowledge for a lot of them. If only Jon Stewart could get them to vote.

Stewart-Colbert '08, anyone? At least it would get my generation involved.
