Colbert Compares GOP Candidate-Picking Process to Beer Goggles in a Bar at 4 AM

Herman Cain is surging in recent polls and is now tied with both Mitt Romney and Rick Perry, leading Colbert to suggest Republicans pick their candidates similar to a "4 AM barroom pick-up: he has a pulse and no visible cold sores." Eww! It's a great clip; watch it below via TPM.
