I (Can Do No Wrong) Of Newt Comments (1)

Newt-wife
Via DailyKos: The Colbert Report makes mincemeat of Newt Gingrich's adventures in marriage. As much as I fear almost all of the potential Republican contenders and take them all seriously—if our economy is still shitty in '12, even Palin will look viable—but it's hard for me to picture Gingrich getting the nomination or being elected. I hope the public continues to say "I don't" to this miserable hypocrite.

Also fun is the morality index Colbert references, wherein Americans think the death penalty and divorce are the most morally acceptable of a series of controversial things, and cheating in a marriage is the least. (Even polygamy outranks cheating!)

Video after the jump...

I love how smarmy Harold Ford Jr. refers to Kirsten Gillibrand as the "young lady" he hopes to unseat. Also, he tries to explain all of his shifting positions, but Stephen Colbert eats him for breakfast. The most scathing and telling moment is when Ford—perhaps used to being a fave on FOX—pointedly brings up President Obama's position against same-sex marriage...in exactly the same way Republicans do...in order to make his own position look better. That should be a lightbulb moment.

And for fuck's sake, can't Stewart and Colbert run on a ticket in the near future?

Tip/Wag - Cynthia Davis & Fox News

Missouri state rep Cynthia Davis (a birther who doesn't believe President Obama was born in the U.S.) opposes subsidizing lunches for low-income students during the summer months because, "Hunger can be a positive motivator." For this too-Republican-to-be-true stance, she earns a very funny "Tip of the Hat" from Stephen Colbert.

Better Know a District - Illinois' 18th - Aaron Schock

Above is the Republican douche that Democrats have inexplicably given a national face by praising his, well, his face. And his six-pack abs. Aaron Schock is not unattractive superficially, but he's superficial so he's unattractive...after the countless interviews of this sort that Colbert has brilliantly executed, you'd think someone young and gay (they say) like Schock would be on his toes enough to come off as anything other than clueless, uncomfortable and desperate to appear serious. I wouldn't kick him out of bed...but I'd kick him.

Grin & Colbert It Comments (0)


Landon from Trousertube has cooked up this remix of Stephen Colbert's interview with Lawrence Lessig, all about pitting blacks and gays against each other over Prop 8. The result is something both groups can dance to—just like disco!
