    • QUOTES (3)

      • Stephen Colbert: You're willing to say you're a fire breathing liberal.
        Rep. Robert Wexler: Yes.
        Stephen Colbert: Why? Liberal is the kiss of death in America.
        Rep. Robert Wexler: Not anymore. I understand that people like you, Stephen, have devoted decades to convincing people that liberalism isn't what's best for the country. But let's review the record. Liberals gave us Social Security. Liberals gave us Medicare. Liberals gave us prosperity in the 1990s. What have you Conservatives given us? The war in Iraq, budget deficits, Dick Cheney.
        Stephen Colbert: You're welcome.

      • Stephen Colbert: (reading from Rep. Wexler's book "Fire-Breathing Liberal") The Colbert Report: it's a fun thing to do.

      • Stephen Colbert: Why do I need a school to teach me American History when I can learn all I need from a Snapple cap? (reads from Snapple cap) A male kangaroo is called a boomer. Diploma please! Schools, wake me up when you come in kiwi lime. Plus, who needs math? I can count on one hand the amount of times I've used it. (counts on hand) 1, 2, 16, 5. Besides, there's nothing kids can't learn from working a 14 hour shift at a textile mill, which requires higher reading levels. See Dick run or Poly-Lycra blend?
