    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Stephen: Tonight: Congress rejects the bailout plan and protects American jobs: Their own. And: There's a new solution to the illegal immigration problem. Please say it's man sized glue traps. Then my guest James Taylor has a new album of cover songs. I can't wait to hear him sing Fergilicious. The Days of Atonement are upon us. I apologize for being perfect. This is the Colbert Report.

      • Stephen: Tip of the hat to singer/actress and bathhouse icon Bette Midler, who announced she will stop touring and setup shop at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas because of the environmental impact of her 14 tour trucks. First of all, since when is Bette Midler an environmentalist? She has single handedly tried to drive ostriches into extinction! But at least the Divine Miss M is helping the environment in a way I approve: By moving her show to a town that would not exist would diverting millions of gallons of fresh water every day for pools, toilets and dancing fountains in the middle of a desert. And which 24 hours a day, 7 days a week is lit and air conditioned like Reddy Kilowatt's wet dream. Though I'm guessing it's not a great idea for Reddy to get wet ever. Although I believe Vegas now gets 30 percent of it's energy from the heat generated by crushed souls.

      • Stephen: A tip of the hat to all the Wall Street jagoffs who got us into this mess. Thanks to them flushing the economy down the old dumper, illegal immigrants are leaving the U.S. and returning home. Clearly this was the jagoffs master plan, drive the economy into the ground until Guatemala is the land of opportunity.

      • Stephen: A lot of people talk about loving the Earth, but how many actually penetrate it?
