(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)>> Stephen: WELCOME TO THE

REPORT, GOOD TO HAVE YOUWITH US.

THANK YOU, LADIES ANDGENTLEMEN.

STEPHEN, STEPHEN, STEPHEN!

STEPHEN, STEPHEN, STEPHEN!

>> I LOVE THAT SOUND, THATIS THE SOUND OF FREEDOM.

HAPPINESS.

JOY!

POWER!

NATION, THANK YOU SO MUCHFOR THAT GREETING.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)WELCOME TO THE REPORT.

GOOD TO HAVE YOU WITH US.

NATION, I AM SO GLAD, I AMSO GLAD TO HEAR THAT YOU ARE

HAPPY BECAUSE I USED TO BEHAPPY.

BUT I LEARNED SOMETHINGTODAY THAT SHOOK ME TO MY

CORE.

AND ONCE MY CORE IS SHAKEN,DON'T COME A KNOCKING.

(LAUGHTER)HERE'S THE DEAL.

REMEMBER THAT ONE TIME IMENTIONED IN PASSING THAT

OBAMA IS PLOTTING TORADICALLY ALTER THE

FOUNDER'S VISION FORAMERICA?

HE IS. BEN FRANKLIN WOULD BEHORRIFIED BY OBAMACARE.

IT DOESN'T EVEN COVERLEECH-CRAFT OR BONE PURGING

FOR FEMALE HYSTERIA.

BUT FOLKS WHAT IS MOSTINSIDIOUS ABOUT OBAMA'S

AGENDA IS HOW IT ISBRAINWASHING OUR CHILDREN.

TAKE MICHELLE OBAMA'S LET'SMOVE CAMPAIGN TO COMBAT

CHILDHOOD OBESITY.

OH 'M SORRY, I'M SORRY.

NO, THAT'S NORTH KOREANDICTATOR KIM JONG UN.

IT'S SO EASY TO MISTAKETHOSE TWO, THEY BOTH LOOK

GREAT IN PANT SUITS.

(LAUGHTER)OH, AND DEAR LEADER HAS HIS

OWN VERY EFFECTIVEANTI-OBESITY PROGRAM.

HE IS THE ONLY ONE IN NORTHKOREA WHO GETS TO EAT.

(LAUGHTER)WELL, NATION, I AM SAD TO

SAY THAT I AM TERRIFIED TOREPORT THAT GENERALISIMA

MICHELLE IS WINNING THEBATTLE OF THE BABY BULGE.

>> A BIG STEP FORWARD IN THEBATTLE AGAINST CHILDHOOD

OBESITY.

A NEW STUDY USING FEDERALDATA SAYS OBESITY IN

CHILDREN BETWEEN THE AGES 2AND 5 HAS DRAMATICALLY

DECREASED.

OVER 40% IN A DECADE.

THIS REPORT COMES OUT JUSTAS THE FIRST LADY'S LET'S

MOVE PROGRAM TO IMPROVEKID'S FITNESS LEVELS AND

EATING HABITS MARKS ITSFOURTH ANNIVERSARY.

>> OVER 40% IN A DECADE.

NATION, I BELIEVE THECHILDREN ARE THE FUTURE.

AND THANKS TO MICHELLE OBAMAAMERICA NOW HAS 40% LESS

TOMORROW.

THAT'S JUST MATH.

THAT'S JUST MATH.

(LAUGHTER)I DON'T UNDERSTAND A FIRST

LADY ACCOMPLISHING SOMETHING.

EVERYTHING THEY DO ISSUPPOSED TO BE A SYMBOLIC

WASTE OF TIME.

(LAUGHTER)LIKE NANCY REAGAN'S WAR ON

DRUGS OR LAURA BUSH'S FIGHTTO END PRESIDENTIAL

ILLITERACY.

(LAUGHTER)WELL--

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)LADY AND GENTLEMEN, THANKS

TO MISS OBAMA INSTEAD OFCARE-FREE CHUBSTERS, WE

ARE NOW BREEDING A

GENERATION OF BODY CONSCIOUSTOTS DOING TRICYCLE SPIN

CLASSES DESPERATELY TRYINGTO GET BACK TO THEIR BIRTH

WEIGHT.

(LAUGHTER)WORST OF ALL THIS IS BAD

NEWS FOR THE GOP.

THEY NEED TO REACH OUT TOTHE PRESCHOOL DEMO.

AND IT WON'T BE EASY SINCETHE REPUBLICANS ARE ON

RECORD AS TRYING TO DEPORTDORA.

AND THEY CONDEMN SPONGEBOBAS A FORM OF BIRTH CONTROL.

PLUS PRESCHOOL ITSELF IS ALEFT WING SOCIALIST TRAINING

CAMP.

SHARING TOYS, SNACK HANDOUTS,PREMARITAL NAPPING, NOT TO

MENTION WASTEFULINFRASTRUCTURE PROJECTS.

YOU'RE OVERBUDGET, SAM.

THAT THING'S NOT EVENDINOSAUR PROOF.

WE CAN STILL WIN THEM OVER,FOLKS.

I THINK THEY'LL REALLYIDENTIFY WITH THE CURRENT

CONSERVATIVE ECONOMIC MESSAGE:MINE!

NOW NATION, DID YOU HEARSOMETHING?

IT SOUNDS LIKE IT CAME FROMOUTSIDE.

IS YOUR FRONT DOOR LOCKED?

I THINK SO ISN'T GOODENOUGH.

IS YOUR FRONT DOOR LOCKED.

NEVER MIND, IT'S COMING FROMINSIDE THE HOUSE NOW.

GET OUT OF THERE!

OKAY.

THAT WAS JUST A DRILL.

NEXT TIME IT WON'T BE.

I'LL BE SENDING SOMEONE.

POINT IS, FOLKS, YOU CANNEVER BE TOO CAREFUL THESE

DAYS.

AMERICA'S CRIME RATE IS SOHIGH IT OUGHT TO BE ILLEGAL.

(LAUGHTER)LUCKILY THERE'S ONE MAN

WORKING TIRELESSLY TO KEEPAMERICA SAFE.

STEPHEN COLBERT.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)EVERY DAY I AM ON THE CASE

24/7.

NOW I DON'T KNOW WHAT THATADDS UP TO BUT IT SOUNDS

LIKE A LOT.

CRIME THAT TOOK PLACE JUSTWEEKS AGO.

MY TWO DAUGHTERS WEREVISITING FROM LONG ISLAND.

AND WE HAD A PARTY, THEWHOLE FAMILY.

>> AND THEN THE TWO OF US,BABS AND I WENT UPSTAIRS TO

GO TO SLEEP.

>> A SLEEP VIOLENTLYINTERRUPTED AT 2 A.M..

>> WE HEARD A DOG BARKING.

>> BUT THE DOG BARKS AND WEDON'T PAY MUCH ATTENTION TO

I BLAME MYSELF.

>> IN THE MORNING BOB GOTUP.

>> AND I OPENED THE DOOR ANDI WAS SHOCKED, GUMBY'S GONE.

>> POLICE ARE LOOKING FOR ABRAZEN THIEF WHO BROKE A 7

FOOT SCULPTURE OFF ITSFOUNDATION.

THE REPORT IS THE OWNERS AREASKING FOR GUMBY TO COME

HOME.

>> THE POLICE DON'T HAVEMUCH TO GO ON.

THEY HAVE THIS LEFTOVERPLEASE OF GREEN STYROFOAM

FROM THE STATUE AND THEYKNOW IT LOOKS LIKE THIS.

>> OH MY GOD.

THAT'S TERRIBLE.

>> A PIECE OF OUR SOUL ISGONE, A PIECE OF ME IS GONE.

THIS LITTLE PIECE OF GUMBYIS ALL I CAN SEE THAT'S LEFT

OF GUMBY.

>> SO WHAT HAPPENED TOGUMBY.

>> THE POLICE HAVE NO LEADS.

THEY TOLD ME THE OTHER DAYTHAT THEY HAD NO LEADS.

>> WHO WOULD DO SUCH A THING,SUCH A THING.

TO TELL US WE TURNED TOFORENSIC PSYCHOLOGIST

DR. LEWIS SCHLESSINGER.

>> IN MY JUDGEMENT, THIS WASA THOUGHT OUT PLANNED AND

PREMEDITATED KIDNAPPING.

WHEN YOU HAVE AN ABDUCTIONLIKE THAT, IT USUALLY

DOESN'T TURN OUT WELL.

>> IS THERE A SERIAL GUMBYABDUCTER ON THE

LOOSE?

>> I WOULD NOT SAY THATTHERE IS A SERIAL GUMBY

ABDUCTOR ON THE LOOSE.

>> THEN HOW DO YOU EXPLAINTHESE CRIMES.

IN COLORADO THIS BLOWUPGUMBY WAS KIDNAPPED FROM THE

LAWN.

AND THEN IN DELAWARE, THEBACK DOOR TO NEW YORK.

>> A SCHOOL YARD FULL OF THESEBEAUTIFUL STEEL SCULPTURES

BUT TONIGHT HE JUST WANTS TOKNOW ONE THING, WHO TOOK

GUMBY?

>> I STILL DON'T KNOW WHOTOOK GUMBY.

>> PHIL FINISHER'S GUMBY WASABDUCTED RIGHT OFF HIS POLE.

>> I'M A RETIRED PIPELINEWELDER.

AND I AM A RECOVERINGALCOHOLIC, 22 YEARS.

AND I NEEDED SOMETHING TO DOWITH MY TIME.

>> SO HE MADE GUMBY BY HAND.

AND NOW GUMBY'S GONE.

>> GUMBY'S GONE BUT I'M NOTGOING TO GO BACK TO DRINKING.

>> NO ONE IS SUGGESTING THAT,PHIL.

>> I HAVEN'T HAD A DROP OFALCOHOL SINCE SEPTEMBER 6th,

1991.

NOT A DROP.

>> LET'S STAY FOCUSED ONGUMBY.

>> THAT'S THE GOD'S HONEST --STRIKE ME DEAD RIGHT HERE IF

I'M LYING.

>> THERE ARE TWO TAKEAWAYSHERE.

THERE IS A GUMBY ABDUCTOR ONTHE LOOSE, AND PHIL ISN'T

DRINKING ANY MORE.

>> TO CATCH THIS CRIMINAL,WE TURNED TO FORENSIC

SCIENTIST LAWRENCEKOBILINSKY

HE SPELLED IT OUT FOR US.

>> LAWRANCE KOBILINSKY FOLLOWEDWITH A Ph.D.

>> .

THE DOCTOR HAD THISSCIENTIFIC ANALYSIS OF THE

CRIME SCENE.

>> HAVING SEEN THE CRIME SCENEAND DIAGRAMS OF

THE LOCATION IT'S CLEAR ACRIME HAS BEEN COMMITTED.

>> HE WAS ABLE TO TELL USWHAT HE LEARNED FROM JUST

THIS REMAINING PIECE.

>> IT SEEMS TO ME THAT THEVAST MAJORITY OF GUMBY IS

GONE.

>> BUT THERE WERE ENOUGHREMAINS FOR A FORENSIC

ANTHROPOLOGIST TO MAKE THISDISTURBINGLY ACCURATE

RECONSTRUCTION.

SO IS THERE ANYTHING ELSEYOU CAN TELL US.

>> IT'S OBVIOUSLY BEEN DONEBY A VIOLENT CRIMINAL WHO

WANTED GUMBY AT ALL COSTS,PROBABLY CAME IN THE

DARKNESS OF NIGHT, GRABBEDHIM, SPED AWAY WITH HIM IN A

VEHICLE, AND THE REST IS GOING TO BE UP TO

SCIENCE TO SOLVE WHO DIDIT.

SO DOCTOR, WHO COMMITTEDTHIS CRIME?

>> WE REALLY DON'T KNOW WHOCOMMITTED THIS CRIME.

(LAUGHTER)>> WHICH LEAVES BOB AND BABS

ALONE WITH THEIR FEARS.

>> THERE ARE PERVERTS WHOLOVE SEX WITH CARTOON

CHARACTERS.

SO THAT COULD HAVE BEEN THEREASON FOR STEALING.

THE CARTOON CHARACTERS DON'TREALLY TALK BACK TO THEM

WHILE THEY'RE HAVING SEX.

THEY, THEY ENDURE IT.

>> WHILE GUMBY ENDURES, THEMESSAGE IS SIMPLE.

>> PROTECT YOUR GUMBY.

>> BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

>> Stephen: WELCOME BACK,EVERYBODY, NATION, IF YOU

CHECK YOUR CALENDARS YOU WILLSEE THAT WE ARE A SCANT

986 DAYS AWAY FROM THE 2016PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION.

I AM FEELING PRETTY GOODABOUT THE GOP'S CHANCES.

WHILE THE DEMS ARE STUCKWITH HILLARY, THE

REPUBLICANS HAVE ANEMBARRASSMENT OF RICHES,

ALSO A LOT OF GREATCANDIDATES.

FOR INSTANCE, LOUISIANAGOVERNOR BOBBY JINDAL, I CAN

TO THE SAY ENOUGH GREATTHINGS ABOUT THIS GUY.

SO I WILL NOT START.

(LAUGHTER)THEN THERE'S SENATOR RAND

PAUL, MANY HAVE CALLED HIMCONSTITUTIONALLY ELIGIBLE TO

RUN FOR OFFICE.

AND OF COURSE AS ALWAYSCHRIS CHRISTIE, YES, YES

HE'S IN A BIT OF A ROUGHPATCH RIGHT NOW.

BUT BY 2016 I'M SURE THISWHOLE SCANDAL IS JUST GOING

TO BE A BUMP IN THE-- IMEAN-- I MEAN-- I MEAN THE

WHOLE THING'S JUST GOING TOBE WATER UNDER THE--

(LAUGHTER)BUT WHOEVER THEY RUN,

HILLARY WILL NOT BE THEUNSTOPPABLE SHE-GERNAUT

REPUBLICANS, FOR THE RECORD,DO NOT FEAR.

BECAUSE FOX NEWS HAS JUSTUNCOVERED A BOMBSHELL OF A

LIFETIME.

>> HILLARY CLINTON COULDFACE AN OBSTACLE THAT HAS

NOTHING TO DO WITH HERHUSBAND'S PAST OR EVEN HER

OWN.

HOWARD KURTZ LOOKS AT THECONTROVERSIAL QUESTION OF

HOW OLD IS TOO OLD.

>> THE AGE QUESTION ISGROWING LOUDER THAN JUST A

WHISPER.

RAISED BY FORMER CANDIDATE ANDNOW FOX NEWS HOST MIKE

HUCKABEE.

>> LOOK, IF SHE'S GOING TOBE AT AN AGE WHERE IT'S

GOING TO BE A CHALLENGE FORHER.

>> IF HILLARY CLINTON IS THEDEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE FOR

PRESIDENT SHE'LL TURN 69JUST BEFORE THE ELECTION.

>> Stephen: THAT'S RIGHT,FOX NEWS IS READY TO PROJECT

THAT IN THE 2016PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION

HILLARY CLINTON WILL BE TWOYEARS OLDER.

(LAUGHTER)I MEAN COME ON!

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)>> Stephen: COME ON.

COME ON!

I MEAN 69, THAT IS OLD.

LIKE OLD, OLD.

WAY TOO OLD TO BE PRESIDENT.

I MEAN SHE'S GOING TO BEALMOST AS OLD AS RONALD

REAGAN WAS.

BUT REMEMBER THOSE WERE MANYEARS.

MEN AGE GRACEFULLY LIKEROBERT REDFORD OR A NICE

LEATHER WALLET.

>> JIM, JIM, WHY DID YOU PUTUP TWO LEATHER WALLETS, I

DON'T-- OKAY, NOW PLUS, PLUSIT JUST GOES TO THE QUESTION

OF TRUST WORTHINESS.

DURING THE BENGHAZI HEARINGS,SHE KEPT CHANGING HER STORY.

FIRST SHE SAID SHE WAS 65.

NEXT YEAR SHE'S 66.

WHERE DOES IT STOP?

SO OBVIOUSLY THE DEVELOPINGSTORY AND WHAT'S THAT-- OKAY,

I'M BEING TOLD THATMRS. CLINTON IS NOW EVEN

OLDER THAN WHEN I BEGAN THISREPORT TWO MINUTES AGO.

I KNOW IT'S RUDE TO TALKABOUT A WOMAN'S AGE.

BUT THAT'S NOT WHAT I AMDOING.

I AM TALKING ABOUT PEOPLETALKING ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE

TALKING ABOUT OTHER PEOPLETALKING ABOUT A WOMAN'S AGE.

(LAUGHTER)THAT'S CALLED JOURNALISM.

WHEN IT COMES TO PICKING THELEADER OF THE FREE WORLD

YOU'VE GOT TO ASK THEIMPORTANT QUESTIONS LIKE

RUSH DOES.

RUSHLIMBAUGH.COM.

AND WE SIMPLY ASK DOESAMERICA, DO THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE WANT TO OBSERVE THEAGING OF THIS WOMAN IN

BEST-CASE SCENARIO.

IN THE SECOND TERM, SHECOULD DETERIORATE INTO THIS.
