Jon Stewart Takes On Conservative Hypocrisy Over Middle Eastern Democracy (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

On Monday night's "Daily Show," Jon Stewart returned from last week's break a little confused -- and not just because violent protests broke out in the Middle East while he was gone.

It's more the media's reaction to the protests that has him puzzled. See, pundits like Sarah Palin and Sean Hannity were all about Middle Eastern democracy a few years ago when it was on the Bush administration's agenda, but now that Obama's in office everyone seems to be singing a different tune.

Stewart pulled up some choice footage to assert his point.

"It was the early-to-mid aughts, man. Everyone was experimenting with democracy then!" he joked.

Check out the full clip above.
