The 2014 midterm elections are upon us, and Jon Stewart has noticed how ridiculous the campaign ads are. Alison Grimes is trying to outdo Mitch McConnell's gun-holding technique, Dan Sullivan is challenging Mark Begich's, D-Alaska, snow machine riding skills, and Mary Landrieu, D-La., can do a keg stand.

There's only one way to describe the insanity, according to Stewart: “If aliens came down to earth and watched our political ads, they would think the Senate was an adult summer camp competition, or some six-year pass to Dave & Buster’s."
