COLBERT: "Now, of course, to judge convention speeches, I always turn to Bill Kristol. Monday night he said this about Michelle Obama's speech."

KRISTOL: "I thought it was sort of generic."

COLBERT: "And, as for Senator Clinton's praise for Barack Obama, here's how Kriristol described that."

KRISTOL: "Generic. Could have been applied to any other democrat."

COLBERT: What a wordsmith. Kristol's description about Democratic speeches are so.... what's the word? Interchangeable? Non-descript? A kind of cheap knockoff of a brand name product? It'll come to me.
