On Monday night's new episode of "The Daily Show," Jon Stewart continued his coverage of the chaos in Wisconsin, going as far as sending correspondent John Oliver to the "savage, frozen territory... devoid of any sign of humanity" known as Illinois to hunt down Wisconsin's 14 Democrats in hiding.

Oliver's journey starts with numerous "check points" (which are actually drive-thru fast food chains) and continues until he runs into Tea Partier David Hale, who actually caught one of the 14 Democrats on camera (not in the hopes of bringing anyone "to justice," just so he could post it on his Facebook page).

Venturing deeper into the "infamous I-90 pass," Oliver was granted a meeting with a "notorious former warlord" in the region, Rod Blagojevich, who refused to sell Oliver information on the democrats whereabouts.

Finally, Oliver received a call inviting him to interview one of the "terrorists," the extremely affable Senator Jon Erpenbach. Oliver did his best to coax a "death to America" style speech out of him, to no avail.
