    Esteban's trot from his front desk to his interview table is fucking classic.

    Brought to you by a 16th seed.

    Holy shit was that funny.

    I was peeing my pants the whole way through. I almost coughed up a lung at the end.

    "Lou, dos hombres... dos chicas."

    Stephen Colbert is the most consistently funny man on television.

    It took me a few questions by Esteban to finally figure out this thing was edited. I don't think Lou Dobbs is fluent in Spanish.

    I just assumed this was edited.

    But Dobbs' referencing the fence early on could throw many people off.

    Seemed like Dobbs was having a good time with it, too. I saw it on Comedy Central when it aired, and didn't think it was edited.

    I guess. But not ever seeing the two of them in the same frame -- unless you count the five times a hand or back shoulder was in with Dobbs -- is a pretty good indication of heavy editing.
  8. I'm sure it was edited. He just repeated the questions in Spanish for the edit. He may have done a little bit of Spanish in the original, like the dos chicas line.

    It's not up for debate.

    Colbert took an old interview with Dobbs and wrote a hell of a skit and had his folks cut it up.
