Episode Summary

David Cross
Tonight, comedian David Cross promotes his new CD, Shut Up You F*cking Baby. Stephen Colbert hosts this episode and begins with a look at a 61 year old man who got arrested at a mall for wearing a shirt saying 'Give Peace a Chance'. Ironically, the man bought the shirt at the exact same mall. Stephen then looks at students across the U.S. protesting the start of the Iraq War by walking out of class for the day. This is followed up by Rob Corddry's report on the variety of anti-war protests from around the world, including a nude demonstration in Chile. Finally, Stephen takes a look at the new weaponry the U.S. would use if it goes to war with Iraq in a segment called "Killer Apps".moreless

    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Rob Corddry: Recently millions of people around the world took to the streets to protest war with Iraq in one of the largest organized demonstrations in human history. And how did President Bush react?
        President Bush (video clip): First of all, you know, size of protest is like deciding, well I'm going to decide policy based on a focus group.
        Rob Corddry: It was just like a focus group! In this case the random sample of world opinion happened to be the world's opinion.

      • Stephen Colbert: At one point the students removed shirts and lied down on the ground to show solidarity with Iraqi victims of US aggression.
        I don't mean to nitpick here but it looks like only the boys are taking their shirts of. Now, how do the women expect to end this war without showing me their nubile young breasts?

      • Stephen Colbert: Welcome to The Daily Show, I'm Stephen Colbert! That's right, Stephen Colbert. Jon isn't here today, and I'm filling in.

        Now, this is the part of the show where Jon usually brings up something in the popular currency and by riffing on it in some engaging manner provides the audience a soft landing if you will, charming you into a world of satire. I however am a charmless automaton.

        What is often misconstrued as my deadpan delivery is in fact a fundamental soullessness!

      • Jon Stewart: Our military has moved boldly forward into a brave new world of killing people.
