Karzai outFOXed

Appearing Sunday on a show that almost nobody has ever heard of and even fewer watch, Afghan President Hamid Karzai lashed out against FOX News, calling them "not really a real news organization, but the propaganda arm of Abdullah Abdullah".

"What the hell is this show?" an incredulous Karzai muttered, in his largely unseen appearance on 'Fareed Zakaria GPS'. "Everybody in Afghanistan watches the Sunday morning shows like 'Meet the Press' and 'Face the Nation' and especially 'FOX News Sunday', which today features their beloved Abdullah. I seriously doubt that many of my countrymen have even the slightest familiarity with the Fareed Zakaria Show. It is to laugh."

Karzai was further stunned to discover that the Fareed Zakaria show was taped for a 1:00 PM airing, a time slot he blasted as 'ridiculous'.

"That's kick-off time," he shouted. "Whatever pathetic audience that might exist for this show will surely be tuned into the game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Minnesota Vikings. I myself have fifty American dollars riding on the Steelers, whereas Abdullah Abdullah persists with his foolish faith in Brett Favre. Ha. I shall take his money with the same ease that I shall seize victory in our runoff election."

Zakaria noted that he also had money riding on the Steelers, a revelation that Karzai described as 'pathetic pandering'.

"You will, no doubt, be watching your irrelevant show on delayed broadcast when the game begins, as is the nature of the chattering class. And to think, at this very moment, my opponent Abdullah Abdullah is chatting with Chris Wallace on FOX News Sunday, answering softball questions intended to sway the Afghan election. It galls me. Rest assured that my stupid agent will soon find himself without employment."
