      • Stephen: The move has caused an outcry stateside. Vice presidential unbelievably hopeful Mitt Romney called the incident "a serious error" to which the Chinese government responded with the very forceful statement, "What's a Mitt Romney?"

      • Stephen Colbert: Of course, lots of people are talking about China's human rights abuses, abuses I find shocking. What are they thinking doing it on their own soil? Isn't there an offshore military base they could use instead? Think outside the borders, guys.

      • Stephen Colbert: In the four days since the [Olympic] games began, America has dominated in swimming, the Chinese have dominated in gymnastics, and the Russians have dominated in Georgia, taking the gold in "individual invasion of a sovereign country." Yes, oh, there is more than a whiff of totalitarianism about these games.

      • Stephen: Tonight: Athletes get involved in global politics. See what Obama started with the damn three pointer? And Canton, South Dakota responds to my attack. It took a while because they were waiting their turn to use the town phone. Then my guest author Jane Mayer claims enhanced interrogation is nothing but torture. You say potato, I beat you with a potato. If life give you lemons, save the receipt. This is the Colbert Report.
