John Oliver Talks Tyranny With Tea Partiers On The "Daily Show" (VIDEO)

"The Daily Show" continued its coverage of Wednesday's "Tea Parties" last night, with footage of John Oliver mingling with protesters in Morristown, NJ. The British host gets numerous attendees to compare the current American government to imperial rule in the 1700's -- then schools them on the difference between "metaphorical thumbscrews" and actually "put[ting] screws to thumbs."
