    • QUOTES (5)

      • Stephen Colbert: Yes, republicans are the true party of change. Remember they were the ones who changed the rationale for war. And they changed the meaning of words, words like freedom, enhanced, and justice department.

      • (on video) Joe Lieberman: What after all is a democrat like me doing at a republican convention like this?
        Stephen Colbert: Oh, I know this one. Spitting in the face of everyone who voted for you? Did I get it?

      • Stephen Colbert: Hasn't McCain stolen some of Obama's thunder, you know, with this historic announcement. I mean to get it back, does Obama have to, like say, I'm going to name the first hermaphrodite Attorney General?

      • Stephen: Tonight: The Republicans finally have their Convention, just when you thought Minnesota couldn't get any Whiter. And: Which party is stronger on national defense? I say we settle it with a war. Then I sit down with historian Doris Kearns Goodwin. I told her this was Meet the Press. Those Republican speakers dished up a lot of red meat last night, they should have their colons checked. This is the Colbert Report.

      • Stephen: General Fig Newton? Tell me, when did he see action? In the Battle of Lorna Doone? I don't know about you folks, but I don't want to be led into combat by a cookie the thinks it's a fruit.
