What Colbert said to David Koch at the TIME Magazine Awards

Of course, all of us should be honored to be listed on the TIME 100 alongside the two men who will be slugging it out in the fall: President Obama, and the man who would defeat him, David Koch...

Little known fact, David's brother Charles Koch is actually even more influential. Charles pledged $40 million to defeat President Obama, David only $20 million. That's kind of cheap, Dave. Sure, he's all for buying the elections, but when the bill for democracy comes up, Dave's always in the men's room. I'm sorry, I must have left Wisconsin in my other coat.

I was particularly excited to meet David Koch earlier tonight because I have a Super PAC, Colbert Super PAC, and I am -- thank you, thank you -- and I am happy to announce Mr. Koch has pledged $5 million to my Super PAC. And the great thing is, thanks to federal election law, there's no way for you to ever know whether that's a joke.

By the way, if David Koch likes his waiter tonight, he will be your next congressman.

2. The waiter joke is too close to home.

My GOOPer Congressman, Kevin McCarthy got his start in the deli business. He got into politics by sticking his head up former Congressman Bill Thomas's ass, who no doubt was funded by the Koch industries, and now holds his uncontested congressional seat, much like a kinglet.

3. Too close to home, or too true?

It seems that too many of our "leaders" are where they are today by kissing asses and kowtowing than by ability.

"Joe the Plumber" anyway? His first name's not even Joe, it's Samuel!

12. He didn't want to be known as "Sam the Sham"

Which would be the more accurate description.

25. Sam the Plumber was

a New Jersey Mafia family Don. Simone Rizzo "Sam" DeCavalcante (1912 February 7, 1997), known as "Sam the Plumber", was a member of the New Jersey Mafia. Claiming descent from the Italian royal family, DeCavalcante was nicknamed "The Count". The Kefauver hearings later named his crime family the DeCavalcante crime family since he was the boss of the family current to those hearings.

33. we had it between 2008 and 2010

and it did little good. When Obama gets up and says "they hate me and I welcome their hatred" then I will believe that he is channeling FDR.

In subtle and humorous ways. He is the best satirist on TV.

Bet there were a few of the Top 100 squirming in their seats.

10. Colbert is a genius

I really admire his ability to stand in front of a bunch of total assholes tell them how and why they are total assholes and then get invited back.

His White House Correspondents Dinner speech going after the media was sheer brilliance. He had damned near everyone in that room skewered on a spit and they knew it.

Colbert is an awesome talent and probably good at whatever he does.

The Brothers Koch are awesome assholes!

So, I would imagine that a RePUG might feel then they are equal.
