Colbert Campaigns for Tom DeLay

The Hammer has his hands full defending himself in court, but he?s still on the ballot in Texas, so Stephen Colbert was kind enough to make a campaign ad for him.  The prayer Tom DeLay says he made before having his mug shot taken, that ?people see Christ through me,? serves as the inspiration for the ad.

Colbert Accuses Congresswoman of Sexual Harassment

Stephen Colbert, in his endlessly entertaining mission to interview every member of Congress, sat down with D.C. Rep.

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.?

Colbert to Suskind: We Need a ‘Zero Percent Doctrine’

Stephen Colbert tells author Ron Suskind that Vice President Cheney’s so-called “One Percent Doctrine”—whereby a one percent chance of terrorists obtaining WMDs must be treated as a certainty—is “soft on terror.”

  • Colbert: “One percent? Shouldn’t it be a zero percent doctrine? I mean even if there’s no chance that someone’s a threat to the United States, and they just look at us funny, shouldn’t we just—[beats a fist into his palm]—tag ‘em?”

    McClellan Still Ducking Queries on Weapons Trailers

    The presidential spokesman won’t say at what point the president learned of a Pentagon report which concluded that Iraqi weapons trailers discovered after the invasion were not—as Bush later claimed—WMD factories.

    Bush Lacked Iraq Rebuilding Plan

    The Washington Times (of all publications) says that a new government report claims the White House “never drew up a comprehensive plan for rebuilding Iraq” after the 2003 invasion.
    In the last week, Bush has lost:

  • Bill O’Reilly
  • William F. Buckley
  • William Kristol
  • Now even the staunchly conservative Washington Times is giving the White House a hard time.
    All of a sudden the ranks of Bush supporters seem about as robust as our “coalition of the willing.”
