Colbert Gets the Goolsbee Bump

I just caught this (with a Tivo-induced lag) — Austan Goolsbee on Monday’s Colbert Report:

The Colbert Report Mon – Thurs 11:30pm / 10:30c
Austan Goolsbee
Colbert Report Full Episodes Political Humor Stephen Colbert in Iraq

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!
