Jon Stewart: Before we go, we check in with our good friend Stephen Colbert at the Colbert Report. What do you have for us tonight, Stephen?

Stephen Colbert:

Thanks, Jon. Tonight: the latest on Iraq.
Is it in disarray? Is peace derailed?
Can we now say that Bush's war has failed?
A failure too calamitous to mock?
Or will the future bring a pleasant shock?
Will it be said democracy prevailed
And will the recent surge in troops be hailed
As more than merely running out the clock?
We'll cover that; then on the lighter side
I'll interview one plucky girl
Who's opened up a brand-new candy store.
Then weather, sports, your weekend movie guide
And finally: a water-skiing squirrel.
All that tonight on the Colbert Report.

JS: Stephen, was that--was that a sonnet?

SC: Yeah. Petrarchan. I said Elizabethan, jackass!
