  • Pat Robertson wants Hugo Chavez assassinated. What else is new?

    Jon starts off the show by talking about how he can't say whatever he wants, because he doesn't own the network he's on. But, apparently Pat Robertson does own a network, and because of that, he can state that he believes we should assassinate Hugo Chavez.

    Jon then goes on to Iraq, and President Bush, who has forgiven nap time, for a big speech tour. He went to speak in front of the veterans of foreign wars, a rather friendly crowd.

    Now, it's time for Stephen Colbert's "This Week In God". He introduces his wife, but she's dead now, and he's available, ladies.

    Stephen talks about Budhism, he then compares how different religions punish people for masturbation. Stephen then goes on to talk about Islam's fast food restaurants. As the segment, Stephen talks about his new practical joke show, baptiz'd, which is right after circumcised. The crowd loved the clip.

    After a commercial break, Jon talks health insurance, and Ed Helms takes it from there. Blue Cross is launching a new type of insurance, Tonik. Blue Cross is trying to appeal to skate-boarders, and all of those thrill seekers with clever marketing. I enjoyed the segment, although this aired in an episode from a while back. I don't mind good segments being repeated like this.

    After a commercial, Jon introduces the gorgeous Rachael Weisz. Jon did a very good job at keeping the interview light-hearted. Lots of laughs, good stuff.moreless
