Two of my obsessions—politics and Muppets—smooshed together for almost four minutes last night. It was glorious:

Meh. I like the Muppets and Colbert as much as the next liberal Muslim commu-atheist Jew Nazi, but that was just a plug for some of that sweet, sweet Disney $$.

I'm with @1. Love Colbert. Love the Muppets. But this routine... pretty weak. Sorry.

Yeah, the best part was Kermit's entrance.

That didn't look like Kermit to me. The voice was so-so, but maybe he had a cold. Definitely, though, the moves were a clearly off. Costume and makeup were good, but I'm betting that was a stand-in.

I love that Colbert waved his hands in the air going "yayyyy!" in a high-pitched voice just like Kermit. Yayyy!

I don't think I want Kermit the Frog saying "Santorum".

For years, I've been looking for the video of Kermit on The Daily Show. It's brilliant, Kermit is in top form and at one point Jon just shakes his head and says, "I can't beleive it. The frog's running circles around me." Great interview.

The video is set to auto-play. Sucky.
