Stephen talks about his hate for John McCain, which he is forced to set aside to support him as the Republican nominee. In "The Wørd," Stephen explains how McCain is like a boyfriend who the country could get used to after getting to know him better. He concludes the segments by showing clips of Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, and Mitt Romney saying negative things about McCain, then juxtaposing them with clips of most of these same people endorsing and talking proudly about McCain. Then in Colbert Platinum, he talks about fake Ferraris and the destruction of homes in Liechtenstein. Finally Stephen interviews Geraldo Rivera about his new book, HISPANIC (the "his" and "panic" portrayed as different words) about the fear generated by the right wing about illegal immigrants coming into the United States. Stephen ends the interview by playing the clip of Geraldo on The O‘Reilly Factor when he said, "The two guys, Stewart and Colbert... they make a living showing clips of old ladies slipping on ice and people laughing. That‘s their life, that‘s their life. They exist in a small little place where they count for nothing." When Stephen asks Geraldo to clarify, Geraldo admits that he changed his mind about Stephen.
