      • Stephen: Tonight: Congress wants to crack down on child labor. Then what's the point of bring your child to work day? Then: I profile California's 12th district. That's the one that's not on fire. And my guest Malcolm Gladwell is here to talk about his new book What the Dog Saw. As a bonus you can use it to pick up what the dog made. Sarah Palin's book goes on sale today. I just hope this finally gets her some media exposure. This is the Colbert Report.

      • Stephen: First of all, convict labor? Enough boo-hooing about these Chinese prison work camps. They are criminals paying their debt to civilized society by making Christmas affordable.

      • Stephen: The 12th contains the Farralon Islands, which some have called California's Galapagos. Though I suspect some of these islands Finch's had beak jobs. The district contains the San Francisco Zoo, home to 29 threatened species including the endangered Black Rhino, the rare Sumatran Tiger and elusive San Francisco Conservative. YouTube's headquarters are in the 12th. Fun fact: Employees at YouTube procrastinate by watching videos of people getting work done.
