The shenanigans are so badon their own, but Colbert's faux-explanation of the shadiness makes it all seem even more insane. For instance, his rhyming explanation of a "typo" on the ballots AFP sent to Democratic voters: "On August 11th, make your selection; that's just two days after the actual election."
