After naming him last week's Alpha Dog, Stephen Colbert had Harold Ford Jr. on last night to defend some apparent changes in his positions. It turns out transforming from a pro-life, anti-gay right-of-center Tennessean Blue Dog into a dyed in the wool liberal New Yorker doesn't make Ford a flip-flopper after all. It's just like in nature when a caterpillar emerges from its cocoon as a beautiful hippopotamus.
The Colbert Report airs Monday through Thursday at 11:30pm / 10:30c.
