Colbert: "I will crush the state of Georgia"
Unpleasant news from the Palmetto State -- Stephen Colbert, already pandering in his bid to take the South Carolina primary, has condemned the state of Georgia [hat tip to the Athens Banner-Herald]. Shameful:
"I promise, if elected, I will crush the state of Georgia," Colbert said to the cheering crowd.
He didn't stop there, going on to disrespect Georgia peaches:
"Our peaches are more numerous than Georgia's," he said. "They are more juiciful."
As he was on the USC campus at the time, I can only assume he was trying to appeal to Gamecock fans and their agri-corp Big Peach allies. Watch yourself, Colbert. Georgia has friends you don't want to anger...
