Leave it to Stephen Colbert to make a mockery of Republicans for their claim that President Obama and the Democrats only moved President Obama's speech indoors because they supposedly would not have been able to fill the stadium where they were over-booked by almost 20,000 -- and that they should have "known what the weather was going to be like months ago" instead of being blindsided by the chance of thunder storms.

As Stephen noted, they could have just pulled out that Weather Channel 100 day forecast if they'd wanted to know whether it was going to be raining or not, or at least that's what resident curmudgeon over at ClusterFox, Charles Krauthammer seemed to be suggesting.
