      • (Video clip of WFTV 9 news)
        Barbara West: You may recognize this famous quote, "From each according to his abilities to each according to his needs", that's from Karl Marx. How is Senator Obama not being a Marxist if he intends to spread the wealth around?
        Joe Biden: Are you joking?

      • Stephen Colbert: Clearly the McCain campaign is targeting its most important voter. Joe the McCarthy.

      • Stephen: Tonight: Senator Ted Stevens is convicted by a jury of his peers. Wow. They found twelve corrupt Senators? Then: Is Barack Obama a socialist. I'm not sure, but the fact that I'm asking seems mighty suspicious. Plus I sit down with Native American author Sherman Alexie. Nobody bring up how we old-stay their and-lay. The following was supposed to contain brief nudity. Thanks a lot network. This is the Colbert Report.
