    • QUOTES (3)

      • Stephen Colbert: You have to admit that socialism is on the outs. It's not a celebrated political philosophy anymore.
        Senator Bernie Sanders: Not in this country but many of the precepts such as the need to abolish poverty, especially childhood poverty…
        Stephen Colbert: The market will take care of poverty. The invisible hand of the market will take care of our problems. You have to let the free market run free.
        Senator Bernie Sanders: The free market in this country has given us a situation where we have almost 20% of our kids living in poverty and the result of that is, you know what, we end up having more people behind bars than any other country on Earth, including China.
        Stephen Colbert: That's class warfare. You are talking about class warfare. You are talking about redistribution of wealth.

      • Stephen Colbert: (about Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI) He was the Holy Father that we think of, you know. And now Mother Church has a new Holy Father. He's like the holy stepfather.

      • Stephen Colbert: (on the topic of cannibalism) Shake it off, Colbert! You cannot eat another co-worker. They're still looking for Craig Kilborn.
