(Newser) – Jon Stewart—dismayed to return from vacation and discover that the world's biggest trouble spots are no longer "Wisconsin and the set of Two and a Half Men"—has a bone to pick with the US bombing of Libya: The name—"Operation Odyssey Dawn"—for starters. "You really named a combat operation after a Yes album?" asks the Daily Show host.

Stewart also wonders where the cash is coming from. "Aren't we already out of money?" he asks, showing clips of numerous lawmakers—including President Obama—explaining that America is broke. "You can't simultaneously fire teachers and Tomahawk missiles," he said.
