Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert provided us with live coverage of the elections last night. To start, Stewart informed us of some of the winners that not even an all-caps email from your mother could get you to care about or voice your support for. Most notably, he mentioned how Democrat Richard Blumenthal defeated Republican Linda McMahon for a senate seat even though she spent a very nice $37 per vote in her campaign. Additionally, South Carolina Republican Jim DeMint defeated Democrat Alvin Greene for a seat in the senate as well. And in Florida, Republican Marco Rubio claimed a seat himself, too.

Stewart spoke with his awesome news team about the results, and even checked in with one candidate who was handling his loss particularly…well?

Stephen Colbert was also live covering the election. Of course, he was joyous to hear the Republicans took control of the house of representatives, even though John Boehner is so orange he’s really only meant to be used by a bartender to write on a chalkboard that tequila shots are only $3 on Tuesdays.

Colbert even came up with his own election results analysis but instead of delivering them by using a newscast, he used supremely sophisticated technology that makes colors look the same and points out how everyone’s somewhat Republican.
