John Oliver took over as summer host for The Daily Show this week and so far so good.

John Oliver has been hitting it out of the ball park.
It was a funny segment. However, I have been disappointed in the way that the Daily Show has handled this.
Oliver called McCain’s saying the NSA mass surveillance fine, necessary, etc. one end of the spectrum.
Fair enough. But he also called Rand Paul’s statement that it is unconstitutional the other extreme.
WTF? Calling this unconstitutional is an extreme?
Even pro-government Scalia said the Founding Fathers would be appalled by the mass surveillance. (Of course, I don’t think it appropriate for Scalia to mouth off about something that is likely headed for the court, but that is a different issue.
The Daily Show rarely hits Obama as hard as it would have hit Bush. Double standards trouble me.
Trouble or not, W is just easier to ridicule and completely not take seriously; he just can’t “hep” it.
Different issue, revbev. Saying that calling the mass surveillance unconstitutional is extreme is flat out dishonest.
I hasten to add: calling it extreme is not hilarious; neither is calling it moderate. It was not about hilarity.
