Colbert nails it as usual and takes the obstructionist "Taliban" GOP to task for following their great leader Rush Limbaugh.
Nation, the GOP must find a way to thrive. For two years the Democrats have occupied Congress but not everyone is willing to surrender. Like Texas Republican Congressman Pete Sessions, who told the National Journal last week that to fight the Democrats "insurgency may be required". Now, before this man gets taken out of context, he was not saying the GOP should model themselves after Al Qaeda. That would be offensive. No. He was just saying the Republicans model themselves after the Taliban. That is a meaningful substantive difference. Like the difference between work and a job.
Now this insurgency, this insurgency shouldn't be too hard for the Republicans. They have a quite a bit in common with the Taliban. Neither, neither one of them is all that big on women's rights. They both want God in government. Both were in favor of the U.S. invading Iraq. And of course they both follow shadowy leaders who communicate through poor-quality video.
