Colbert Compares the GOP to Klingons [VIDEO]

Stephen Colbert weighs in on a spat between Ron Paul and Mike Huckabee, and finds all the GOP talk about "honor" reminiscent of both Nixon and the Star Trek villains.
In another uproarious edition of "The Word", Colbert picks apart one of the most interesting moments from Fox News' recent Republican presidential debate, where Mike Huckabee attacked Ron Paul from the right for his anti-war stance. Huckabee talked about leaving Iraq with honor, using almost identical language compared to Richard Nixon when he was trying to pull out of Vietnam. By the time John McCain chimes in the Republicans are starting sound more like Klingons than real people. Check out the video to your right for more.
