Stephen Colbert Zings Ben Nelson

I was rather surprised to see Ben Nelson, the Iraq-war supporting conservative Democrat from Nebraska, would be appearing on the Colbert show. There's really nothing to gain from appearing (he's not selling a book), and he must have known that Colbert would take him apart on the war.

Fortunately, Colbert didn't disappoint.

If you watch till the end, you'll see that Colbert closes the interview by cornering the interviewee with a trick question and then says "Thank you for supporting the president" in a tongue in cheek way. However, this time, the question was no trick and he definitely meant it when he paid Nelson that 'compliment'.
