Stephen Colbert watched President Obama's "State of the Union" address Tuesday night, but it wasn't really Mr. "Look at me, I'm President" that he was interested in.
While Jon Stewart empathized with Obama about his "spilled milk" joke bombing, Colbert criticized him for cracking wise and called him the "Jay Leno-in-chief."
As you might expect, Colbert was far more interested in the conservative rebuttals, including that of "Shrink ray experiment" Mitch Daniels speaking on behalf of the GOP and Herman Cain who brought the Tea Party response.
Cain name-dropped Colbert and gave him props for endorsing him, as well as reaching the nation's "immature" voters who might not otherwise know about the race if they didn't watch "The Stephen Colberts."
"Well said, 'The Herman Cains'," Colbert joked.
