While Jon Stewart and I were away (he's still gone, but I'm back), John Oliver had a bit to say about privacy. Of course, our own Senator Lindsey Graham, hot to beat out any Tea Party challengers in 2014 (you know who I'm talking about, Lee Bright), is the go-to guy on just about every issue that plagues our lawmakers.
