WATCH: Stephen Colbert Skewers New Pitchfork-Wielding Colorado Rep Who Did Exorcism on Obama
Stephen Colbert is naturally delighted at the results of the midterm elections. "Analyzing the midterms is like peeling back the layers of an onion," he said last night. "The deeper you go, the more the Democrats cry."
His new "fave rave" is Colorado state legislator Gordon Klingenschmitt, who has many positive traits, like holding a pitchfork in his campaign ads and trying to perform an exorcism on President Barack Obama.
"Yes," Colbert said. "Obama is possessed by a demon and won't even show the demon's birth certificate."
Klingenschmitt makes a comedian's job easy, writing the jokes himself. In another ad, he says that if, "Jesus was a marriage counselor, he would tell two men who are married to get divorced."
Perfectly reasonable scenario, Colbert says. "Jesus would also keep them talking for 65 minutes so he could charge for the second hour."
Because that's just how Jesus rollls.
