and this was in reference to 2000

Jon Stewart : What’s your overall sense of the mood down at the Republican convention floor. How did it feel to be there last night during the speech?

Stephen Colbert : Well John, as a journalist I have to maintain my objectivety, but I would say the feeling down here was one of a pervasive and palpable evil. A thick demonic stench that roles over you and clings like hot black tar, a nightmare from which you cannot awaken, a nameless fear that lives in the dark spaces beyond your peripheral vision and drives you toward inhuman cruelties and unspeakable perversions. The delegates bloated, pustulent bodies twisting from one obsene form to another, giant spider-shaped and ravenous wolf-headed creatures who feast upon the flesh of the innocent and suck the marrow from the bones of the poor.

  3. are you sure he didn’t have the RNC confused with michael moore? at the very least, he would have taken care of the “thick demonic stench,” “nightmare,” and “bloated” parts.

  4. I don’t think anyone has ever confused Michael Moore with anything republican.

  5. Don’t forget the rest of it! (I don’t have a copy, but I had that thing nearly memorized and have been looking for it on video forever!) The rest is something like:

    “And all of them lead like lambs to the slaughter by their infernal master at the podium, known by many names: Beelzebub, Mammon, Abaddon, Epheritus, Asmodius, Satan, Lucifer, Nick, Old Scratch, the Ancient Enemy, and He Who Must Not Be Named. This is Hell, John, where the damned languish forever in a black flame that gives no heat, sheds no light yet consumes the flesh forever and will not go out.

    John?”

    Brilliant.
