      • Stephen: The Colbert Report's terror level has been elevated to brown - someone spilled coffee on the chart. This is The Colbert Report!

      • Stephen: …our cause is tonight's Word: Cappuccino. Folks, Ned Lamont may have won the Connecticut primary but his supporters are not mainstream Democrats, they're against the Iraq War, a position so extreme that only 86% of Democrats agree with it. (17/20ths –a fraction!) You see if these fringe elements win in November and start running they county they're gonna advocate polices that mainstream America just doesn't want. Crazy stuff like national health insurance, (65% Approval) and raising the minimum wage. (83% Approval) Now the poll-stapo out there are gonna say: Hey, 86% of Democrats is a majority, that means they're in the mainstream. No it doesn't. Not everything the majority of people do is acceptable. (Like internet porn) You see folks, the American electorate is like a cappuccino, (Whites on top) most of it is foam, I'd say roughly 86%. Looks like a lot in the bowl there but it's just froth. The real substance is pushed down to the bottom like the 13 flavorful percent of Democrats who are for the war. They're small but they're dense. (And they keep you up all night) Now I agree with Joe Lieberman here, that this country has become way to partisan. What we need in Congress are two strong vibrant political parties that just want the same thing. (To be re-elected) So I am calling on Democrats to join Joe Lieberman and his 14% pro war majority in the mainstream. Let him save you from yourself. (By running against the candidate you choose)

        And folks, that's the Word.
