Rep. Robert Wexler, Friend of The Colbert Report, Is Resigning (Presumably to Spend More Time with His Cocaine and Prostitutes)
Longtime viewers of The Colbert Report may remember Rep. Robert Wexler, collecting his Colbert Bump while representing Florida's Fightin' 19th on "Better Know a District."
Well, he represents that district no more…
U.S. House of Representatives member Robert Wexler of Boca Raton, a self-described "fire-breathing liberal," defender of Israel and friend of both President Barack Obama and Gov. Charlie Crist, is quitting Congress to head a think tank seeking peace in the Middle East.
Typical American. Thinking he can use a tank to bring peace.
Anyway, here's Wexler's first ever appearance on The Colbert Report, way back in July of 2006, in simpler times when a politician could be forced to admit to using coke and hookers on basic cable television and still get elected…
And, if you're a big time Wexler fan (for some reason), you'll find a bunch more clips after the jump. Otherwise, here's a clip of President Obama being made to salsa dance under duress.
The Colbert Report airs Monday through Thursday at 11:30pm / 10:30c.
