|Indecision 2012 - New Hampshire GOP Debates - Moderate Extremes|
Republicans take looking back at the past through rose-colored glasses to a whole new level, don't they?
Sure, the party generally targets the elderly, working to attract people who are easy to scare, gullible enough to believe Fox "News," and with social opinions formed when America was far more racist and homophobic. But the Magna Carta? Are they going after the vampire vote now?
But Stephen Colbert explains it: "Remember, the Magna Carta was written by angry rich men who believed their ruler was an illegitimate usurper." Heh, heh. Makes perfect sense now, doesn't it?
Note that this was Colbert's second segment of the night on the New Hampshire primary. The first is here. I didn't include it, because I'm shortly going to be posting yet another video clip from last night's show. Yeah, the Colbert Report is an embarrassment of riches.
