Bob Barr + Stephen Colbert = Hilarity

Stephen Colbert had Libertarian presidential candidate Bob Barr on his show last night. It was a smooth move by Barr, the former conservative Republican.

Much less of a crank than, say, Ralph Nader.

Favorite quote: "I do like brownies. I don't know whether it had hash in it or not."

As the The Whited Sepulchre has pointed out, Colbert is a genius.
