Colbert Report: "edWORDs"

This is probably the funniest thing I have seen in awhile. Edwards reminds me again why he was the candidate that I picked to support in this race. He also reminds me why he is one of my favorite politicians: a genuine sense of humor.

Crooks and Liars...

Former Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards took over the Wørd segment from Stephen Colbert to discuss the all important demographic in this election: white, male voters. And who better to talk about their values than Edwards?

You know, Stephen, you’re right about white males playing an important part in this election. Their votes are being courted as a demographic tiebreaker between these two tough candidates and no white male’s vote is being courted more vigorously than this one. [points to self]

It is no secret that both campaigns have sought my support. So far, I haven’t decided which of these excellent candidates I’m going to endorse. On the one hand, I don’t want to be seen as anti-hope. On the other hand, I don’t want James Carville to bite me. So who? Who am I going to vote for in the next to the last primary, North Carolina? Well, I’ll support whoever presents a platform that’s consistent with my values. I’ll support the candidate who’ll raise the federal minimum wage. Someone who’ll fight for the 37 million Americans who wake up in poverty every day. Somebody who’ll protect the interest of working families. Also, I’d like a jet-ski.

Of course, to counter my favorite candidate of the 2008 race doing a very funny monologue, my least favorite candidate of the 2008 race did a very unfunny monologue. (But I have to give Mitt credit -- the "number one" reason was hilarious!)
