      Stephen Colbert: I knew I should have gotten a Zune. They can't kill me or do anything else.

    • Stephen Colbert: Inflation is at its highest rate in 17 years. God, it's getting so a country can't spend $1 trillion on two wars without hurting its economy anymore.

    • Stephen: Tonight: The Russian invasion of Georgia continues. Turns out nested inside that truce was another war. And: Are the Olympics good for China just for the sweatshop workers who finally get to see their sneakers in action.

    • Stephen: Look here Mr. Cookenboo. First of all, I don't know how a Dr. Seuss character got the job running a fleet of limos, Dr. Cookenboo and you can too, but you have to come up with more limos, I don't care how many funeral processions you have to break up to do it.
