“Chuck, if I have to keep talking about the midterms after tomorrow night, I’m going to go to Maine and start making out with that nurse,” Colbert responded. He’s of course referring to nurse Kaci Hickox, who sparked a media firestorm refused to stay quarantined in her Maine home after traveling to West Africa recently. She never showed symptoms of Ebola, so Colbert has nothing to fear if he tries to make a move on her.
