After Hamid Karzai's double-talk on whether he supports the U.S. or the Taliban, leave it to Jon Stewart to provide the most understandable coverage of the, ah, difficult situation we find ourselves in, and what could happen if we don't support Karzai anymore: the Kablooey offensive.

Jon then discussed Afghanistan further with Reza Aslan later in the show.  Health care stuff below the fold.

I guess the Daily Show staff had a thing for Tarantino yesterday, because while that segment on Karzai had the text "Ingrateful Basterd" under him, in Jon's earlier segment, he blasted the health insurance companies for trying to find loopholes to still deny children coverage, and that asshole Florida urologist Jack Cassell as being "Inethical Basterds".  Yep, there were a lot of bastards to cover in the news last night.

So what this means, as Jon puts it, is that if you voted for Obama, Dr. Cassell doesn't want to touch your penis.  But if you voted for McCain, he'll gladly touch your penis.  :-)

Again, if you know any friends who actually support Cassell, send them this clip to show them he has no fucking clue what he's talking about when it comes to the health care bill.  Who knew it'd be Alan Colmes, of all people, to expose Cassell as a fraud?

(But to be "fair and balanced", Jon also ripped Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL) for saying what this doctor is doing is akin to racism, even when it perhaps is.)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
