This Tuesday night on The Daily Show, it was round two for guest host John Oliver taking on the recent leaks on the NSA's surveillance programs. Oliver did a great job going after Fox blowhard, Bill O'Reilly, BFF's John McCain and Lindsey Graham and Rand Paul and their reactions to the story over the last week.

Bill-O was a little too concerned about the spying potentially being used to exploit a Republican senator with a prostitute problem. Sounds like a whole lot of projection going on to me.

Then we had technology expert and "cantankerous old man" John McCain asking why we can't act the same way we did on Sept. 12, 2001 - an argument Oliver quickly made a complete mockery of.

Next up, Rand Paul, who has suddenly found a new respect for Supreme Court decisions -- now that he wants them to overturn something he doesn't like.

And last but not least, Miss Lindsey, who could care less if the government is scooping up all of our phone conversations, but don't dare put gun owners' information into a database.

Oliver wrapped things up by reminding everyone which amendment looks like it "has won the Bill of Rights." I don't think anyone here will have any trouble guessing which one that is.

Can you help us out?
