Political humor of the day

"Who's a greater friend of the state of Israel, you or Joe Lieberman?"

- Stephen Colbert to Ned Lamont, Lieberman's challenger in the Democratic Senatorial primary and "netroots" darling
The question was greeted by laughter, both from the audience and from Lamont. I'm sure you can guess the answer, which started with "The Senator and I are both committed to Israel's security and well-being." Not a word about the current Israeli assault on Gaza and Lebanon. And this interview, I presume, took place after the massacre in Qana (not that hundreds of Lebanese and Palestinians hadn't been killed already before that massacre took place).
