Zagat reviewer and supposed Senate candidate Harold Ford did Colbert last night. He deftly met every joke with an inane talking point, just like a real Senate candidate!

Honestly, it is not that funny to corner professional politicians on "flip-flops," even if, like Harold Ford, they are not very good professional politicians. And Harold has heard the "you were pro-life" and "you hated gays" lines so many times that his craven shamelessless barely shines through during his canned responses. But asking if there were other places in New York Harold designates as "Helicopter-only" was funny. (And Harold responded by talking about how much he loves the NYPD, of course.)
