      • Stephen: Tonight: Who's threatening out jobs? Wait, people still have jobs? Plus: I profile some heroes who are keeping America strong, and it's not Chinese bankers. Then I'll ask Newsweek's Jonathan Alter whether we need a new FDR. Seriously, the old one's getting kind of gamey. Hey pants, why should I have to put you on one leg at a time? I'm not like everyone else. This is the Colbert Report.

      • Stephen Colbert: (Shows magazine close-up picture of Sarah Palin)This is People's best retouching work since they made Clay Aiken's make up look like skin (shows magazine picture of Clay Aiken). Sarah Palin should look like this in every picture! Like a brand new mint condition porcelain doll. Because I think we can all agree it's best if Sarah Palin is never taken out of the packaging!
