Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., ended his nearly 13-hour filibuster Wednesday , which gave Thursday late-night shows a change to examine it. The Daily Show highlighted Paul’s refueling technique, while Colbert Report host Stephen Colbert looked at the reason Paul was utilizing the filibuster: The Obama Administration’s use of drones.
