Posted on Jul 19, 2007
“The Daily Show’s” Jon Stewart and John Oliver take down the most recent Democratic disappointment: the Senate’s all-night session. Oliver, political theater critic for the show, gives his most scathing review to date.

Jon Stewart: But this is maybe the most scathing review you’ve ever given.
John Oliver: Because this was so derivative! It’s the same old, old story. America meets war. America gets war. War turns out to be somewhat different than what America thought is was when it first fell in love with war. But now war won’t leave America alone. It’s really just a flabby rehash of 1971’s “Repeal of Tonkin Gulf Resolution.”
