      • Hillary Clinton (news clip): We may be dealing with a 17th century crime but we need to bring 21st century solutions to bear.
        Stephen: Ah, 21st century solutions. I assume there is an anti-piracy iPhone app, the i-arrgh.

      • Stephen: In the last several weeks, Somali pirates have hijacked 14 vessels, including the Maersk Alabama whose captain they held hostage. Luckily, the navy was able to rescue the captain and no-one was hurt. I assume it doesn't hurt when you are shot in the head by a sniper.

      • Stephen: Tonight: How to deal with the scourge of piracy. If only there were a form of transportation besides boats. Then: Governor Rick Perry says Texas might secede. Oklahoma better get to work on that border fence. And my guest is Joe Arpaio, America's toughest sheriff. Well…I gotta go flush my weed. Spoiler alert! Ugly duckling, you're actually a swan. An ugly swan. This is the Colbert Report.
