Last Thursday, Stephen Colbert had brilliant segment of Formidable Opponent, where he debated himself about Mitt Romney's positions. And in it, there was one key question he asked which lays to waste Romney's entire tax proposal.
RED-TIE STEPHEN: OK, Stephen, voters respond to authenticity. So Mitt's clear victory in the first debate proves his new moderate values are the real ones.
BLUE-TIE STEPHEN: You are adorable! (in voice parents make to babies) Who got sucked in by Romney? You did!
RED-TIE STEPHEN: No I didn't.
BLUE-TIE STEPHEN: Yes you did!
RED-TIE STEPHEN: Knock it off.
BLUE-TIE STEPHEN: Who doesn't like when I talk like this? You don't!
RED-TIE STEPHEN: Hey, if anyone fell for it, it's you hardliners when you nominated Mitt. I mean, for Pete's sake, he gave us Romneycare, the inspiration for Obamacare!
BLUE-TIE STEPHEN: Which he will repeal and replace.
RED-TIE STEPHEN: With more Romneycare.
BLUE-TIE STEPHEN: Which he leaves up to the individual states. And I am sure Mississippi will step right up to the plate.
RED-TIE STEPHEN: Hey, he is looking out for the middle class.
BLUE-TIE STEPHEN: He's promising a 20% tax cut for the top 1%.
RED-TIE STEPHEN: Ah, but he's also promising to close their tax loopholes, so they'll still pay the same amount.
BLUE-TIE STEPHEN: Then... why cut their taxes?
