What do you get when you put Stephen Colbert in a room with a congressman facing an uncontested election? Television magic. Prompt or no prompt, it’s not every day you hear an elected official talk about cocaine and prostitutes. That must be a really safe seat.
Colbert: Wow. You realize there is no amount of damage control you can do at this point.
Congressman Wexler: That’s right.
Colbert: We’d better finish this interview quick, ‘cuz I’m not sure how long you’re going to be in Congress.
