Just saw Pervez Musharraf on the Daily Show, and while I had previously been somewhat impressed with that guy, I was pretty dubious about a guy who became leader of his country through a Coup d'├ętat. After watching him on the Daily Show tonight, I must say I was super impressed. In addition to being from India, then growing up in Turkey, and then being able to rise to the top of the Pakistani military organization, he was also able to easily hold his own with John Stewart, who seemed to get harder on him as he realized Musharraf was rolling with the punches. The highpoint of the interview was when Jon Stewart asked him who would win an election in Pakistan between George Bush and Osama Bin Laden and he responded they would both lose horribly. Funny.
