Mike Castle: "I'm Going To Cockblock Delaware" (VIDEO)

On Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report" Monday night, Rep. Mike Castle (R) pledged to "cockblock Delaware."

Asked to promote the state that he alone represents in the House, Castle referenced the state chicken -- the fighting Blue Hen. Host Stephen Colbert asked if Castle planned to bring cockfighting back to Delaware, describing himself as a "cock enthusiast."

"Not really, no," Castle replied. "It's part of the history of Delaware, but I have no interest in bringing it back."

So, Colbert went on, "you are going to cockblock Delaware."

"I'm going to cockblock Delaware," the Republican lawmaker concurred.

Colbert and the self-described moderate also talked about (somewhat more seriously) about gay marriage and gun control. Watch:
