The “Colbert Report” host rips Ralph Reed, who recently lost the Georgia Lt. Gov. race. When a wave of mock sympathy ran through the audience over Reed’s demise, Colbert said, “Send [Reed] your strength. He’s like Tinkerbell.”

And Colbert didn’t have time to name all the candidates “fighting for our Christian values,” but a sign on-screen assured us “The indictments probably will.”
