Musharraf does ‘The Daily Show’!

Pakistan’s President Pervez Musharraf will go down in the books as the first sitting world leader ever to appear on The Daily Show.

He was flogging his new memoirs, In The Line of Fire.

Here’s an excerpt from the AP story on Yahoo! News:

To conclude the interview, Stewart put Musharraf on the “Seat of Heat,” a new feature for the program in which red lights flash around the studio and the guest is asked a final question.

“George W. Bush and Osama bin Laden — be truthful — who would win a popular vote in Pakistan?” asked Stewart.

“I think they’ll both lose miserably,” replied Musharraf, an answer met with raucous laughter by the “Daily Show” audience.
