    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Stephen: You know Adam, it is always a pleasure to meet a young conservative, ah, someone who is filled with a hope that nothing will change in the future.

      • Stephen: Well, the time came and Sarah Palin rocked the house. First, she introduced her brave record of reform
        Sarah Palin: I told the congress, thanks but no thanks on that bridge to nowhere.
        Stephen: See, she is not only principled but polite. even more polite than she let's on. Because in actuality first she said, 'Please' to the bridge to nowhere (shows a news article by Reuters showing first supported the building of the bridge) then she said 'Thanks' when they gave her the 233 million dollars. But when it became a national embarrassment, then she said 'No, thanks' but still had the grace and poise to keep all the money.

      • Stephen: Tonight: Hockey mom Sarah Palin delivers a rousing speech at the Republican Convention, though she was given five minutes for high sticking. And: The Republicans dish up more red meat, if you count human sacrifice. Then former Presidential candidate Ron Paul sits down with former Presidential candidate Stephen Colbert. Warning! I may contain more than a trace amount of nut. This is the Colbert Report.

      • Stephen: That's Fred Thompson for you. He won't stick a daisy on a turd and sell it twice. It's like that old saying: Before you peach pickin' make sure your giblets are dry, your trowel sack is grinnin' you've whipped the lumps out of your gravy and don't let your sly eye ricochet off the silver in a hobo's pocket. Am I right?
