On Wednesday's episode of "The Daily Show," Jon Stewart said that he had recently noticed a new commercial airing during his show from Koch Industries, a global energy and manufacturing giant helmed by brothers David and Charles. Oh, and the Kochs happen to be notorious for donating hundreds of millions of dollars of dark money to fund various elections."Now that we know the Koch brothers are pouring an unending waterfall of money through a cleverly masked network of unaccountable organizations to peddle electoral influence, the ad sounds less inspiring" Stewart said."Clearly the Koch brothers are trying to say to our audience of not yet dying off voters, even though you may have heard certain things about the Koch brothers, how bad could they be?" said Stewart.

Specifically, Colorado Republican gubernatorial candidate Bob Beauprez, who believes that intrauterine devices (IUDs) should be banned because they are "an abortifacient."
Maddow had to prepare herself for this one.
The MSNBC host relocated to her very own "man cave," where she took viewers back to elementary school health class, complete with diagrams and illustrations of the female reproductive system.
