Ask a direct question, get a direct stare

Here's a description of part of Kerry's appearance on the Daily Show (which I didn't see because I don't have cable):

As Kerry launched into a monologue about why President Bush avoids talking about issues like the economy, jobs and the environment, the comedian interrupted.

"I'm sorry," Stewart said. "Were you or were you not in Cambodia?"

Stewart and Kerry then leaned in and stared each other down before Stewart asked about other things Kerry's opponents are saying.

It was perhaps the most bizarre television moment for Senator Kerry's supporters thus far. People seemed to think it demonstrated something positive about the man (a sense of humour? something? anything?) when to me it demonstrated he had no answer to the question. Other than, "No", that is.
