Remember when Nezar Hamze -- a Muslim and executive director of Florida's Council on American-Islamic Relations -- got shut out of the Broward Republican Executive Committee?

That whole situation got a well-deserved clowning from the Daily Show With Jon Stewart.

The show even landed a hilarious interview with "congressional candidate" Joe Kaufman, a constant critic of Hamze and CAIR.

The Daily Show's Jason Jones got around to asking Kaufman something we've all been wondering about Kaufman and his organization, "Americans Against Hate."

"What is your definition of against?" he asked.

Kaufman's struggle to find a definition adds to the hilarity of the entire thing.
