Rare Footage: See Stephen Colbert Prepping John Kerry for The Colbert Report (VIDEO)

Some old, but previously unseen, footage has popped up on the interwebs, offering a rare glimpse behind the scenes of The Colbert Report. The occasion is a special one—John Kerry has arrived for his appearance on the Right-skewering show—and an aide documents the frenzied minutes before airtime. If you’ve ever wondered what Colbert says to his guests to put them at ease before the ribbing they’re about to receive, now you know. And how great is it to see Kerry congratulate Colbert directly for the infamous White House Correspondents’ Dinner speech that minced the Bush regime to a fine pulp, to their very faces?
