|The Colbert Report||Mon – Thurs 11:30pm / 10:30c|
Here’s the highlight reel:
- Clear evidence of Austan’s growing political savvy: Following Colbert’s assertion that the Canadian prime minister is a madman — “I have no comment.”
- Best analogy: Following Colbert’s claim that Obama was too keen to nationalize GM — “Your house is on fire … the guy runs in, takes your kid out, saves their life. Now is not the time to accuse them of kidnapping.”
- Words that may haunt him: “A year from now, we’re going to be in a very happy place.”
- And the interview concludes with Austan giving Stephen Colbert a noogie!
