      • Stephen: Tonight: Should American embrace soccer? And if so, can we use our hands? Plus my guest Kevin Mattson thinks Jimmy Carter was underappreciated. Not true. Without Carter, Reagan wouldn't have looked so good. Bernie, look on the bright side, when you get out no one will suspect a 221 year old man. This is the Colbert Report.

      • Stephen Colbert: I'm afraid I have some terrible news. Nation, (Audience ooohs) shh, it's, it's going to be that bad. Because Nation, today the Minnesota Supreme Court ordered that Al Franken be certified as a US senator. (Audience applauses loudly). Yes, yes, I ... I also expressed sadness through cheering and applause. It's like my left hand is Al Franken and my right hand keeps slapping him.
