|The Word - Change We Can Believe In|
On Wednesday, Stephen Colbert started off talking about the GOP primaries in Michigan and Arizona, both of which went to Mitt Romney. Romney only won his home state by a little over 3 percent. He voiced the GOP's fears that Mitt Romney might take the nomination, who many worry will be unable to defeat current President Barack Obama. In the “Word,” he discussed Obama's repeal of the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy. He talked about how many people favored the tax cuts because they understand the “trickle down economics” and realized that the job of the rich is to spend, and the job of the poor is to work. When the rich have low taxes, they tip better, which should be enough to improve the economy, right?
Colbert went on to do “Tip of the Hat, Wag of the Finger.” He talked about the birth control controversy. A biologist in Kansas has come up with what might well be the first birth control substance for men. Rick Santorum doesn't like this, and is promoting the dangers of contraception, such as more babies being born out of wedlock. Colbert suggested that anyone who wants this new pill should have to get a trans-urethral ultrasound, in which the wand is “shoved up their wing-wang.”
He also discussed “baby-ccinos,” cappuccinos for babies. Colbert suggested that we take it one step further and offer babies all the things we as adults can do, putting out the idea of “Virjunior Slims.”
His guest was the great William Shatner. Shatner has a new one man show on Broadway called Shatner's World. They talked about what people will learn from the show, and they talked a lot about how wonderful Shatner is. They also arm wrestled, and Shatner wrecked Colbert.
