Stephen Colbert Rushes DNC Podium With Security In Hot Pursuit


Hungry For Power Games‘s Julius Flickerman and his pet weasel Caligula returned to Stephen Colbert’s The Late Show, for Hungry for Power Games: DNC Edition.

Julius spotted CNN’s Jake Tapper and asked if he knew where to find NBC’s Chuck Todd, whose goatee had not called back Caligula since their encounter at the RNC.

As he had done at the RNC, Julius tried to take the DNC podium. But, while the RNC had a sense of humor about the schtick, the DNC appears to have been humorless. In the DNC’s defense, it was having a bad day [see Wikileaks].

Anyway, DNC security refused to let Colbert’s character take the stage despite his “podium pass”  – and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi vouching for him.

So, Colbert made a game out of tormenting security, running around the floor until finally he outmaneuvered them and made a dive for the stage, shouting, “God Bless America! God Bless Freedom Of The Press,” and “I’m not one to gloat, but I won!”
