Colbert Parodies Sarah Palin's Nonsensical Facebook Rant Aimed at Hillary Clinton

Sarah Palin doesn't tend to make much sense, so when she crashed and burned—literally, by her own account—she appeared even more unhinged. On Sunday, the former Alaska governor hit her head while she was rock climbing and proceeded to post images of her injury on Facebook accompanied by a bizarre anti-Hillary Clinton rant. 


"Don't worry, she's OK—or, you know, the same," Stephen Colbert told his "Late Show" audience about Palin, before rehashing her message:

"Now, I would chalk that up to head trauma, if it didn't sound like everything else she says," said Colbert. "Anyway, she is injured."

"Now, I'd like to wish Sarah Palin a speedy recovery, and I would like to do it in a language she'd understand," Colbert added, before jumping into full-on monologue mode.

"Governor Palin, I hope you rest up there, heck what with the rock-running and the stone skipping and the boulder bingo, remember my middle name is Tyrone with the media coverup of the danger zone and everybody's cutting footloose, loosey-goosey good for the gander, good for the planner of the down-dog wedding. Oh, the cookies are ready, hey, track-trig, trig-track, break up you mama's back. Why? Because our veterans drill, baby, drill. Try our mozzarella sticks, ask me about free shipping. God bless it. Just leave us alone, voices," Colbert spouted off.
