Hillary Clinton Makes Surprise 'Colbert' Drop-In to Drop Some Names: VIDEO

Clinton_colbert

Hillary Clinton dropped by The Colbert Report last night just as Stephen was accusing her of shameless name-dropping in her book Hard Choices.  Clinton then showed Colbert that a bit of shameless name-dropping in the name of book promotion is no hard choice for her.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. Her book was a disaster in sales, her tour was a disaster in PR ("We was SO po!...") and she's on damage control mode with heavily scripted "gags" and friendly audiences. It's amusing to watch.

  2. … and yet she'll still beat whatever clown the GOP throws out, @Mike.

  3. Oh will she? LOL. The Maryland (D) Governor I understand just came out of the background and others are making noise because they see she's no better than she was in 2008, in fact, she's worse.

  4. Mike, the lone Republican troll on this site, hating on a Democrat?! I'm SHOCKED.

    He's just bitter that his beloved GOP hates his guts and has no chance in the next presidential election.

  5. That was cute as hell. Beautifully scripted, a real little piece of clever comedy and I love them both for it. Hillary for President!

  6. @MIKE 500,000+ in sales sounds good to me. And you do realize a lot of people will buy it during her campaign, which is less than a year away. How many copies have the Republican contenders' books sold? Or other Democrats for that matter.

  7. 5 weeks on the best seller list? What a disaster!

    Known by her first name around the world? What a disaster!

    Able to pronounce and spell foreign leaders' names? What a disappointment!

    Able to speak in complete sentences? How unRepublican is that?

  8. What absolute BS. Her book is widely viewed in the publishing biz as a disaster, and currently Ben Carson (the black neurosurgeon) and the Clinton expose book are bestsellers on the NYT list, having widely outsold hers. But you can continue with how "popular" she is. As can be seen by her now doing skits.

  9. You *do* realize, just like the BS line that Faux Noise tends to throw out ('the most watched cable news channel on television') that these figures could be colored by the population who viewed the medium?

    If you're saying that it was a 'disaster,' it might be because, on average, OLDER PEOPLE ARE THE ONLY ONES BUYING HARDCOVER BOOKS THESE DAYS! We young'uns are going through Kindles and using digital copies, in general. That would explain why House Negro Carson and books by the mental giants like Dinesh D'Souza are doing so well...

    Old reprobates are flocking to burn their Social Security money on 'em!

  10. On the NYT bestseller list is a book at no 3 with a description like this:
    "A 3-year-old’s encounter with Jesus during an appendectomy".
    It seems to imply those who buy the book of a brainless surgeon are the same as those who believe in a sky fairy. Reading certain books doesn't automatically make a person more literate.

  11. That neurosurgeon is also the same one who is constantly in the news bashing the population group this blog is geared towards. I realize gay people may hold many different political affiliations, but at least be cognizant of those who threaten our rights and ability to live freely and equally.

    An interesting sidenote- Dr Ben Carson retired from Johns Hopkins Hospital (and isn't teaching full-time as far as it can be reported) not too long before he started making more appearances on FOX, conservative radio, and his more distasteful comments about us started coming out. Now, he's a regular feature on talk-radio, conservative tv, etc., a book, lectures, and even a political campaign. Coincidence?

  12. When the republican party stops pandering to the lowest common denominator of Americans and starts respecting equal civil and human rights for all people, then we can start talking about other political points about which reasonable and thoughtful people can have legitimate disagreements. There is no valid alternative viewpoint when it comes to civil and human rights, GLBT people most certainly included. So while Mrs. Clinton may not be the most inspiring and progressive candidate ever (she's too hawkish for my taste, but the first woman President will almost have to be... see Thatcher), there really is no viable alternative for any GLBT person who cares about equality (either for themselves or for other people). So let's not get the idea that supporting Mrs. Clinton in the upcoming election means that we are super excited about her policies in every arena. It just means that she's the least offensive alternative. Just like it almost always means.

  13. She's cool....
    Love her!!

  14. "Her book was a disaster in sales" No, it wasn't, especially given the generally dismal state of physical book sales. It is by industry standards quite the success. "her tour was a disaster in PR" No, it wasn't. It may not have come anywhere near an actual political campaign tour, but there were no gaffes, no disasters, only adoring crowds turning out to meet her. "and she's on damage control mode with heavily scripted "gags" and friendly audiences." No, she's not. There's no need for damage control, she's just playing the populist card as many politicians have done ever since her husband's scintillating Arsenio Hall appearance in which he played sax, effectively placing him prominently on the map of Joe Blue Collar Voter. "It's amusing to watch." It was a reasonably amusing segment, nothing to get all spinny-hatey-dishonesty about. Ahem. Happy viewing!

  15. @THEMILKMAN: I agree. When it comes to voting it doesn't pay to nitpick and look for reasons not to vote. You pick the candidate who's on your side of the issues.

    And that is never the Republican if you are gay.

    Hillary is so strong as a candidate that Republicans fall into one of two categories: Those who subtly or accidentally indicate they will vote for her (usually women). And those who begin complaining incoherently about Hillary just before collapsing.
