Jon Stewart Stands with Rand Paul

Jon Stewart Stands with Rand Paul

One might expect Comedy Central star Jon Stewart to skewer Sen. Rand Paul for the politician’s filibuster questioning the administration’s drone policy.

After all, Rand was calling into question President Barack Obama’s Peace Prize bona fides by delaying the confirmation of John Brennan as CIA Director.

Instead, The Daily Show host decided to do what plenty of Americans happily did Wednesday–stand with Rand.

“He’s using the filibuster in the way it’s supposed to be used,” Stewart cracked as the audience tittered nervously.

Holy Howard Roark’s Ghost, indeed.
