Colbert on Russia Election: I Want to Give a Shout out to My Friend, Putin
COLBERT: "Well, I just want to take a minute here to give a shout out to friend of the show, Vladimir Putin. Yesterday, Putin won re-election with 76% of the vote. No, ladies and gentlemen, you’ve got to give it up. Congratulations to president Putin... For making up a realistic-sounding number. 77 is too much. 75, that’s two three-quarters-y. 76, that’s about right. This is Putin’s highest margin of victory yet. It’s really impressive. Though, I’m starting to think he might have had help from the Russians."
