Stephen Colbert delivered at keynote a few days ago at the Time 100 event that was right up their with his legendary Washington correspondents dinner speech. As usual, Colbert aimed his rapier wit at many of the influential people in the room that night including that enemy of democracy and the American people, David Koch.
Sure, he's all for buying the elections, but when the bill for democracy comes up, Dave's always in the men's room. I'm sorry, I must have left Wisconsin in my other coat.
I was particularly excited to meet David Koch earlier tonight because I have a Super PAC, Colbert Super PAC, and I am — thank you, thank you — and I am happy to announce Mr. Koch has pledged $5 million to my Super PAC. And the great thing is, thanks to federal election law, there's no way for you to ever know whether that's a joke.
By the way, if David Koch likes his waiter tonight, he will be your next congressman.
The entire transcript is at the link, if anyone knows of video of the event post it in the comments.
