    Colbert: Mideast Goes ?Democrazy?

    Linguists beware; Stephen Colbert has invented a new word: “democrazy.”  As the host explains, ?there was a time when I thought the key to Middle East peace was representative government, but then democracy gives us a prime minister who sides with Hezbollah, an Iranian president who wants to go nuclear, and a Palestinian government controlled by Hamas.  So, now, I?m thinking maybe we did the wrong thing.?
