      • Stephen Colbert: Is there any different way that women used to use their power of beauty or was it only because it was the only power they had?
        Salman Rushdie: Well, that, but they also used lotions and potions.

      • Bob Barr: I think part of leadership is recognizing when something is not working and not stick with it just because that's the way it's always been.
        Stephen Colbert: Don't we need to keep our troops in the War on Drugs because, if we withdraw, that's admitting surrender?
        Bob Barr: Well, what we have to do is we have to recognize the current War on Drugs is not working. Similarly, the wars in other parts of the world are not working either and we have to recognize that and recognize that we're stewards of a great history.

      • Stephen Colbert: Full disclosure, folks, I, myself, am a libertarian. I don't want big government to infringe on my right to tell other people how to live.

      • Stephen: Today is the first day of the rest of your life. And it's already 11:30. What a waste.

      • Stephen Colbert: Tonight, the Democratic primaries are over. Are we positive Canada doesn't get a caucus?
