Arguably the best thing about the Colbert Report is the regular "Better Know a District" segment where Stephen interviews various members of Congress. Tonight he interviewed the openly gay Jared Polis of Colorado's 2nd district and it was hilarious.
As you can probably imagine, a good portion of the interview centered around Polis' sexuality, and to his credit he handled Colbert's ridiculous questions deftly, even turning the tables completely on Colbert to essentially question his sexuality, a strategy which led to a few nuggets of pure comedy gold. And then, after quoting Polis saying that working in Congress was like going back to college, Colbert pulled some cans of Coors Light and a beer funnel from a bag and challenged Polis to funnel beer with him, a dare that Polis accepted, thankfully, as the end result was almost as funny as the time Colbert coaxed Robert Wexler into professing his love for hookers and cocaine.
