Colbert: Romney Connected With Empty Michigan Seats By ‘Also Being Plastic And Uncomfortable’

• David Taintor

Stephen Colbert thought that when Mitt Romney addressed a nearly deserted Ford Field in Michigan last week it was the “speech of a lifetime.”

Yeah, there were a bunch of empty seats. But the important thing is “Mitt really connected with those empty seats by also being plastic and uncomfortable,” Colbert said Monday.

And Romney is the only candidate brave enough to address the issue of Michigan’s tree height. “Meanwhile, Obama remains suspiciously silent our national tree altitude controversy,” Colbert said.
