Stephen Colbert cited a recent Washington Times editorial by Ted Nugent on Monday's episode of 'The Colbert Report.' In the editorial, the rocker described the youth of today as "terminally stoned on apathy."

But, Colbert agreed with Nugent on the dangers of apathy. "Yes, apathy, which is a gateway drug," he said. "It starts with apathy. It eventually leads to crystal meh."
