Stephen Colbert had Neil Young on his show the other night and it turned into a very interesting discussion.

Young does a great job at showing that the stereotype of liberals "being against all war" is wrong. He admits that Afghanistan was a war of necessity and the main problem with Iraq is that it allowed us to take our eyes off of enemy number one - Osama.

Colbert worked hard to keep his wingnut persona going, but towards the end you can really tell that he enjoyed talking with Neil too much and that made it hard to keep up the charade. Neil even gives Colbert a nice little gift in the segment.

Can you help us out?
