Video: Stephen Colbert hypes debate as "the Up-ender in Denver!"
If University of Denver officials ever needs a hype man, they need look no further than Stephen Colbert, whose preview segment about tonight's debate at DU (it's on view below) would've put Flavor Flav to shame. With the DU debate logo behind him, he whipped up the crowd about "the Mile High Match-up, the Up-ender in Denver, the Thrilla between Chocolate and Vanilla."
Colbert also looked forward to challenger Mitt Romney's predicted use of zingers -- "because Americans need to know their leader has a well-honed sense of zing."
Damn straight! Here's the clip.
