Stephen Colbert Explains How He Got An Exciting New Title


President Obama -- and the Democratic party in general -- has never had a more brutal critic than Stephen Colbert of The Colbert Report, and while he tried to live up to this reputation in the latest episode, he couldn't quite keep it up given that he's just returned from attending the first State Dinner of the President's second term. This would be an exciting enough engagement under any circumstances, but given that the dinner was in honour of France's embattled/philandering head of state, there was an extra frisson to the whole proceedings, and the upshot is, Stephen may have been granted a new title! Watch and enjoy.
