Colbert Was Not Impressed by Gay Poet Richard Blanco: VIDEO


Stephen Colbert took apart Obama's inauguration last night, "yawning to life" for poet Richard Blanco.

Said an exasperated Colbert:

Would it kill you to throw a rhyme in there? It's a poem. It's not that hard. Here--

There once was a man named Barack
Whose reelection came as a shock
He raised taxes I pay, and then turned marriage gay..
And now he's coming after your glock.

  1. There once was a man named Colbert
    Who shone as a jester on air.
    He made lots of money
    being quite funny
    but his sense of free verse was unfair.

  2. Funny enough, I've never been impressed by Colbert.

  5. So can anyone name who is it that this poet guy looks like? It's some comedic actor who does New York whiny guy.
