Stephen Colbert always twists current events into stories that make us fall over with laughter.
Honestly, the politics of midterm elections have been annoying (especially all the never-ending email messages of fear from the Democrats). Over the years, I’ve turned away from politics because I find more satisfaction in my day-to-day actions such as biking my kids to school, and participating in community workshops like painting murals or planting trees.

Colbert’s clip about elections made me stop, and listen. Sure, I dislike all the political chaos, but I will vote.
