"The Daily Show" does a great job with the NSA story here, with John Oliver doing his first day substituting for Jon Stewart.

Oliver was hysterical last night. I only hope he is that funny and topical all summer.

To the extent that Snowden has helped, looking at the bright side and all that jazz, the, what-are-we-going-to-call-it? has help us come to terms with the conditions of a service contract almost nobody reads or cares too much about.

That's what friends like Althouse and Volokh are for.

He was a little nervous... I detected a little tremor... but other than that he did oright.

John Oliver did a pretty funny thing about going to speak with the Dems that split town to avoid the vote on Walker's budget bill.

That wasn't John Stewart? Does whoever-he-is work cheaper than John Stewart? Cause if he does, I've got good news for the producers.

He reminds me of Simon. Of course, bespectacled and British are key to that similarity.

Bad news is Althouse has gotten so wrapped up in this Snowden Trojen, she has neglected her Caf├ęs.

Just saying.

I watched about four minutes of this.

The writers are the same. The punchlines and gestures are the same. Only the faces and accents are different.
