Stephen Colbert took his turn making a fool of Sean Hannity for his embrace of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and his standoff with the federal government.

After having some trouble with a "ballad" he was working on for Bundy due to Bundy's recent statements on what he knows about "the Negro," Colbert took to "praising" Hannity for his embrace of Bundy instead.

COLBERT: My one regret here is that I did not embrace Cliven Bundy sooner like Sean Hannity did, you know, really draw him to my bosom, to link us inexorably together, to hang him around my neck like some kind of lucky dead seabird.

But you beat me to it Sean. You're good buddy. You're good. Thanks to your nonstop supportive coverage of Bundy, now when anyone thinks of folks who have insight into "the Negro," they'll think of Sean Hannity. I mean these two... these two go together like Ku and Klux.

I salute you Sean. I salute you for bravely standing by a man whose only crime, was breaking federal law.

Can you help us out?
