BUT MY PERSONAL FAVORITE-- (CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

FOLKS, MY PERSONAL FAVORITEIS TEXAS GOVERNOR AND

CARTOON OF A TEXAS GOVERNORRICK PERRY.

THIS GUY SHOULD HAVE BEEN ALOCK IN 2012.

COLBERT SUPER PAC SUPPORTEDHIM IN THE IOWA STRAW POLL

WITH A SERIES OF POWERFULADS URGING IOWANS TO VOTE

FOR RICK PERRY WITH AN A, ANA FOR IOWA.

BUT RICK PERRY BLEW IT.

DEBATE GAFFE THAT NO ONE CANFORGET EXCEPT HIM.

ANYONE WHO DONATED MONEY TOHIS CAMPAIGN.

BUT GOVERNOR PERRY HAD AVALID EXCUSE FOR FORGETTING,

HE WAS HIGH.

YOU SEE DUE TO A BAD BACK HEWAS ON PAINKILLERS.

AND IT BECAME OBVIOUS PERRYWAS ON THE JUNK WHEN HE

ASKED NEWT GINGRICH IF HECOULD HELP HIM BAKE THE

COOKIES IN HIS HOLLOW TREE.

BUT FOLKS, REMEMBER.

THAT RICK PERRY THAT HIGH,OUT OF TOUCH RICK PERRY IS

GONE.

AFTER TWO YEARS OF AGONIZINGREAPPRAISAL THE GOVERNOR HAS

COMPLETELY REINVENTEDHIMSELF WITH A PAIR OF

GLASSES.

-- BUT PERRY, OOPS-- BUTPERRY, PERRY HAS ALSO MADE A

MORE TROUBLING CHANGE, TOCURE HIS ACHING BACK SO HE

CAN DIAL BACK THE PAINKILLERS,PERRY RECENTLY ANNOUNCED HE

HAD GIVEN UP ON COWBOY BOOTS.

>> YEAH, OH YEAH, YEAH.

YES, YOU WERE MILDLYSHOCKED.

I COULD TELL.

YOU HEARD RIGHT, THEGOVERNOR OF TEXAS SWEARING

OFF COWBOY BOOTS.

THAT'S LIKE THE GOVERNOR OFCOLORADO TURNING HIS BONG

BACK INTO AN APPLE.

EVEN WORSE, EVEN WORSE,PERRY SPURNED HIS SPURS FOR

PLAIN BLACK LOAFERS, NICESHOES, DAD.

EVEN WORSE, HE'S PAIRINGTHOSE LOAFERS WITH 2014'S

LEAST APPEALING FASHIONACCESSORY, BARACK OBAMA.

AND I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE WHOIS ENRAGED, FOLKS, SO IS

TEXAS LAND COMMISSIONERJERRY PATtERSON WHO

PASS FOR A WEST COASTMETROSEXUAL.

OH, OH, OH.

(LAUGHTER)I DON'T KNOW WHAT A

METROSEXUAL IS BUT I'MGUESSING THEY DON'T SAY,

MEOW.

(LAUGHTER)THIS IS DEFINITELY GOING TO

BE AN ISSUE IN 2016, FOLKS.

CONSERVATIVES RESPECTTRADITION.

WHEN A MAN MAKES ACOMMITMENT TO BOOTS ITS A

COMMITMENT FOR LIFE.

THAT'S WHY I'M STILL WEARINGTHESE BABIES I GOT WHEN I

WAS A MEMBER OF THE KISSARMY.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)ALL RIGHT.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)ALL RIGHT.

I WILL NEVER TAKE THESE OFF.

BECAUSE I WANT TOROCK-AND-ROLL ALL NIGHT AND

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)>> Stephen: HEY, WELCOME

FOLKS, IT'S GOOD TO SEE YOUAGAIN.

THERE IS SOMETHING I NEED TOTALK TO YOU ABOUT RIGHT NOW,

I DON'T HAVE TO TELL YOUTHAT THE WORLD IS FALLING

APART UNDER BARACK OBAMA'SLEADERSHIP.

I MEAN I'M GOING TO TELL YOUBUT I WANT TO POINT OUT THAT

NO ONE IS MAKING ME TELL YOUAND JUST WHEN AMERICA NEEDS

A STRONG LEADER MORE THANEVER WE ARE LOSING ONE OF

OUR GREATEST.

CAPTAIN AMERICA.

HE FIRST WON OUR HEARTS IN1941, ISSUE NUMBER 1 BY

PUNCHING HITLER IN THE FACE.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)AND THE HULK, MAY I POINT

OUT THE HULK WAS NOWHERE TOBE FOUND.

I GUESS THE HOLOCAUSTDOESN'T MAKE BRUCE BANNER

THAT ANGRY.

HULK IGNORE ATROCITIES.

UNFORTUNATELY, CAP'S DAYS OFPROTECTING AMERICA ARE

NUMBERED AND THAT NUMBER IS21, JIM, RIGHT IN THERE.

THERE IT IS BECAUSE UNLESSYOU'VE BEEN FROZEN IN ICE

FOR THE LAST 65 YEARS, YOUKNOW EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENS IN

THIS ISSUE.

IT'S A TALE AS OLD AS TIME.

THE IRON NAIL CURRENTLY INHIS MONSTER FORM HAS

LAUNCHED A PLOT OF FRAMINGCAPTAIN AMERICA BY LAUNCHING

HELICARRIER GUNGNIR TO BE AFLYING ROBOT AND DESTROY THE

NATION OF NROSVEKISTAN.

OF COURSE ALL OF THIS ISJUST A FANTASY.

IN THE REAL WORLDNROSVEKISTAN HAS BEEN

ANNEXED BY VLADIMIR PUTIN.

BUT-- FOLKS-- (APPLAUSE)

WHEN CAP TRIES TO STOP HIMTHE IRON NAIL HITS HIM WITH

FLYING NEEDLES WHICH REMOVETHE SUPERSERUM FROM CAPTAIN

AMERICA'S BLOOD CAUSING HIMTO LOSE HIS SUPERSOLDIER

POWERS AND INSTANTLY AGE 65YEARS.

MEANING HIS NEW SUPERSERUMWILL BE ENSURE.

I JUST CANNOT BELIEVE THISIS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW.

I MEAN CAPTAIN AMERICA WASTHIS CLOSE TO BEING PROMOTED

TO MAJOR AMERICA.

THIS IS A DISASTER, NATION,WITH STEVE ROGERS BROUGHT

THERE IS A HUGE VOID IN THECAPTAINING OF AMERICA.

YOU WOULD HAVE TO LOOKDECADES YOUNGER THAN YOUR

ACTUAL AGE AND IT SHOULD BESOMEONE WHO ALREADY OWNS

CAPTAIN AMERICA'S ACTUALSHIELD.

THAT'S RIGHT.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)THAT'S RIGHT.

THE SHIELD'S BEEN UP THERESINCE 2007.

I NEEDED IT IN MY BATTLEAGAINST NICKELBACK.

AND I FOR ONE, I WANT YOU TOKNOW THAT I WILL BE PROUD TO

WEAR THAT LETTER A AND THISTIME IT WON'T BE BECAUSE I
