Stephen Colbert kicked off his show last night by showing anti-immigration campaign ads from Senate candidates Sharron Angle (R-NV) and Sen. David Vitter (R-LA), that use the same stock photos.

“This is the most terrifying scenario of all: There aren’t enough stock photos of scary minorities out there to represent all the scary minorities we know have got to be out there,” Colbert said.
