Huckleberry in 2008!
Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert returned Monday night with strike-oriented shows. Jon even interviewed a dull labor expert. Colbert had a number of funny bits, replaying his many anti-union statements, then introducing tonight's "Word" -- which failed to appear. He also claimed that Mike Huckabee's Colbert "bump" earned him the Iowa win and showed Huck in three separate appearances on the show inviting him to run with him as his vice president. That Huckabee-Colbert ticket, Stephen said, would indeed have a great ring to it. Say it fast and it would be Huckle...berr...y.
