Jon Stewart devoted three segments to the Iranian elections and ensuing protests last night. The first had Stewart explaining the context of the story, and calling Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad batshit insane. He then showed a clip of Ahmadinejad saying Iran is the most stable country on Earth, which kind of proves his point.
Stewart then moved on to America's response which included Joe Biden equivocating on the issue, saying he has doubts, the saying he has no comment. Jon took this opportunity to mock the vice president for not understanding that saying one has doubts is a statement.
Jason Jones then reported live from Tehran, calling Stewart an ass for making him go to the embattled nation, and John Oliver proved through a magic screen (a la CNN) that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad won fair and square. Apparently he did very well with soccer imams.
