Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Stephen Colbert: "…somebody at the Wall Street Journal lost a fiddle contest to Dick Cheney."

      This statement refers to the Charlie Daniels Band's "The Devil Went Down To Georgia", in which Satan challenges a mortal to a fiddle contest, betting a golden violin against the mortal's soul.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Stephen: Tonight: The healthcare debate rages on, probably because there's nothing in the bill that covers debate rage. And: Shocking news at the MTV Video Music Awards. Apparently, MTV shows music videos. Then my guest is Cory Booker, Mayor of Newark, and it is a measure of how far that city has come that he is willing to admit that. I'm back from vacation, what did you bring me? This is the Colbert Report.

    • Stephen Colbert: The GOP has so much momentum that they are already looking forward to who can take down Obama in the 2012 election. Last week The Wall Street Journal suggested ... Dick Cheney (shows excerpt from The Wall Street Journal with the headline "Cheney for President").
      Which can only mean one thing... somebody at The Wall Street Journal lost a fiddle contest to Dick Cheney.

    • Stephen Colbert: Nowhere is the Republican resurgence more clear than in the health care debate. Obama's plan is obviously falling to pieces. Because the President did something he only does when completely desperate: He made an inspiring speech. You know you've got Obama trapped when he gives you an inexplicable desire to make the country the best it can be.
