George Will on The Donald and other Colbert Treats

Tonight on Colbert, Colbert quotes George Will "who said this, this week, on this week's This Week:"

George Will: The cost of appearing with this bloviating ignoramus is obvious it seems to me: Donald Trump is redundant evidence that if your net worth is high enough that your IQ can be very low and you can still intrude into American politics.

Colbert also drops some Latin for you Classical Nerds, quoting Cato the Elder's "Carthago delenda est" (Carthage must be destroyed).  Then he dismisses his audience's lukewarm response with: "De gustibus non est disputandum (In matters of taste, there can be no disputes).

Colbert finds the silver-lining in Egypt's Presidential runoff between Mohamed Morsy and Ahmed Shafiq:  "Nobody likes either candidate; angry protesters are screaming in the streets; and only 46% of registered voters went to the polls--which means Egypt finally has achieved American-style democracy....Because democracy isn't about getting everything you want.  It's about not getting most of what you don't want."
