Colbert Kicks Some Shit

"On the Colbert Report last week, Boca Raton representative Robert Wexler, who's running unopposed for reelection, played along with Colbert's 'say anything, you can't lose' game and jokingly expressed his fondness for cocaine. It was genuinely hilarious, thus you can't expect the Today show and Good Morning America to understand. It's a long clip, but Colbert responds appropriately -- if it doesn't involve baking tips, pet tricks, or summer shoe styles, the morning shows simply cannot compute." --Gawker

(Coach has a late addition for the Great News Videos post -- "this comes from a ny fox 5 broadcast where they're showing how easy it is to steal a bike/cut through a bike chain (as an aside, yeah it's easy with a power saw like they have). one of the guys nearby pretends like he's been cut by the power saw and starts rolling on the ground in 'pain' and screaming. the reporter freaks out and starts screaming at him about how not cool his actions are. pretty damn funny.")

Not only was it "not cool," it didn't seem too easy either. It didn't even look like they made progress on that chain.

Who in the hell is going to stand there that long in broad daylight sawing through a freaking chain? Or was that the joke and I'm just being dense here?

I hear you, all I'm saying is that the FOX people shouldn't have been so easily fooled. I mean do they let people on the air who just say "Hey! We can cut a chain with a saw!" with no confirmation?

Maybe that was supposed to be one of those segments where they checked back every 15 minutes or so.
