Farce at its finest

This one's arguably the most brilliant set piece that the (often overrated) Daily Show has put out. It's a zinger; political farce at its finest, the finish positively heretical.

Aasif Mandvi's comic timing is exquisite. He throws in a few crucial pauses while delivering the best line I have ever heard on the show: "As one gentleman told me while standing in the... smoldering remains of what was once his village... You can't get hummus... without mashing some chickpeas."

Mandvi makes this sound like hip-hop.
