Check out this clip from Colbert’s clever “The Word” segment, in which the show pairs Colbert’s earnest-sounding deliveries with smart-aleck phrases at the side of the screen.

From this clip:

“Like Jesus, right now the president is lost in his own metaphorical desert. (Literally, Iraq).”

“Sure, maybe he can’t walk on water. (Katrina proved that).”

Watch the whole clip (“The Word” segment comes a few minutes into it.)
