The Colbert Report Word: The Audacity Of Nope

One of the funnier Word segments I've seen from Stephen in a while now. He rips up the House Republicans for voting against the stimulus bill in a way only he can.

Last night---last night's party line vote was a great start for the 111th Congress. But these hard times demand an even larger meaningless gesture. That is why I am calling on every Republican who voted against this bill to put no money where your mouth is. Refuse to accept a single penny of the eight hundred billion dollars for your Congressional district.

Think of it---think of it---think of it like a hunger strike. Then---then just sit back and watch in glee as the Democrats face the wrath of their constituents suffering as the eight hundred billion dollars tears through their districts like a force five cash-o-cane.

It won't be easy but you are fighting for a principle. If we can't have a perfect bill to stimulate the economy you'd rather have no economy at all. And that's the Word.
