Though Stephen Colbert is on Comedy Central, the interview he did below with former U.S. Congressman Harold Ford was very uncomfortable to watch. People forget that Colbert is not only funny (incredibly funny), but that he is also a world class interviewer. And Ford learned this the hard way.
Ford’s sometimes right-of-center views have been putting him in a pickle in left-leaning New York, now that he’s been rumored to be running for a U.S. Senate Seat. Verdict: Harold Ford’s pandering to Colbert won’t be enough to put him in the U.S. Senate.
