Colbert's racist Imus moment [VIDEO]

Daily Show: Imus dons "contrition shades and the stetson of regret."
Uh oh. Looks like that progressive teen idol, Stephen Colbert's got a few skeletons in his closet. Just look at the way he tries to squirm out of his flirtation with racism...

Jon Stewart, not to be outdone by his former correspondent, mocks the story AND the coverage, noting that Imus came to his apology donning the "contrition shades and the stetson of regret."

The second Daily Show video features the Daily Show's "black correspondent," Larry Wilmore... but not in the studio.
