Comedy Central Comes to Madison

Stephen Colbert created a new "Turmoil in the Middle West" graphic for this story:

He also implied that he will be in Madison on Tuesday, but he may have just meant that he will continue covering the story.

On The Daily Show, Wisconsin's protests were called the Bizarro Tea Party. John Oliver was in Madison on Monday to cover the story (maybe that bit will air tonight).

Is he the guy with the camel and the camel had to be rescued by the MFD after falling?

Yes, John Oliver was on hand for the idiotic camel stunt (video can be seen here http://www.thedailypage.com/thesconz/article.php?article=32394&sid=48e2cf00faae1463f53cd90d1e5d01c1). They did not use any camel footage and instead took a different approach with the John Oliver segment.
