On his second night back at the helm of "The Daily Show," Jon Stewart continued to focus on the crisis in Syria and the Obama administration's seemingly unwavering march to war. If only John McCain could have stayed focused as well.

After the former presidential hopeful was caught playing online poker during the Syria hearing, Stewart quipped that McCain should leave his post and go straight to Vegas where he could play all the poker and express all the crazy opinions he wants.

The segment went on to find Stewart going off on a tangent that was supposed to be about the repeated failures of U.S. intervention in the Middle East, but was actually his own lamentations about his film "Rosewater." (We're sure it's fine, Jon... we'll go see it.)

Watch the segment above, and then take a look at the second part below where John Oliver, as Sir Archibald Mapsalot III, attempts to once again redraw the map of the Middle East... because why not?
