Jon begins tonights show congratulating President Pervez Musharraf of Pakistan who won overwhelmingly in his country's election by 98%.

Next, Jon takes a look at the ever expanding definition of the word torture by the Bush administration in a segment called "Cruel Intentions". Apparently, extreme temperatures, sleep deprivation, and simulated drowning don't count as torture. According to the Justice Department, only those things that "shock the conscience" are considered torture. Senior Interrogation Analyst John Oliver talks with Jon about how using different words like "enhanced interrogation" helps alleviate the moral implications over using torture.

Finally, Jon updates us on the Senator Larry Craig bathroom scandal in a segment called "Trapped in the Senate". As Jon notes, Larry is a bit confused as to a lot of things going on in his life, since he might or might not be gay and might or might not resign from the Senate. Senior Legal Correspondent Samantha Bee talks with Jon about how the court ruled that Larry Craig is in fact, gay.
