David Sirota on Colbert (video)

Riding Sirota hard, Colbert notes that the loss of billions in retirement funds by Enron employees shouldn't be seen as such a negative: "Problem? These people have an opporTUNity... to start a new career in their 70s!"

Sirota's a bit stiff, a bit too earnest given the show's emphasis, but he comes off as passionate, articulate and knowledgeable... A solid "B."
