When Fox News recently broadcast photos of the current GOP presidential candidates but labeled a photo of President Obama as "Mitt Romney," some felt the apparent mix-up seemed a little too convenient that the hard right-wing news channel equated the moderate Romney with the current Democratic president.

But Stephen Colbert forgave the gaffe after anchor Megyn Kelly apologized for saying that the two men are not the same, "not philosophically, not ideologically, not any other way." Because if the two completely different human beings had a more convergent opinion on a flat tax, the error could be forgiven.

Colbert forgave Fox and Kelly, but only after needing a refresher on exactly who Kelly is. You know, the blonde Fox News anchor? No, not that one. No, not that one. In this clip, Colbert finally gets to the bottom of Fox's Freudian slip.
