Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart recreate the controversial New Yorker Obama “Politics of Fear” cover from mid-July on this week’s Entertainment Weekly.
In the interview, Colbert and Stewart dish on the nomination of Sarah Palin, the candidates’ personas, the ‘gotcha’ moments, the financial crisis, and their own personal advantages as comedic pundits — being able to view the election from a distance, and to be wrong and not have to worry about it.
Says Colbert: “One of the things I love about my character is I can make vast declarations and it doesn’t matter if I’m wrong. I love being wrong. So my character can tell you exactly what’s going to happen: The Democrats are going to change everything. We’re going to have gay parents marrying their own gay babies. Obama’s gonna be sworn in on a gay baby. The oath is gonna end ‘So help me, gay baby.'”
