Since The Colbert Reportwas filmed before last night's jobs speech, Stephen Colbert spent part of the show discussing the previous night's GOP debate -- and, specifically, Rick Perry's huge applause line about the hundreds of executions that happened in Texas on his watch. Colbert also took on Perry's remarks about Social Security, the "universally beloved, highly effective cancer on our society."
