Stephen Cobert Called It

Update 10/09/07: Our YouTube video got Viacom'ed, so we're hosting it on DailyMotion instead.

The other day I was watching the Daily Show's election night coverage of the 2000 presidential election, from "Indecision 2000." As I was sitting back, about to relive both the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat, I was suprised when Stephen Colbert made a prediction that pretty much summed up these last seven and a half years.

Check out the video:

Stewart: Stephen, are you seeing parallels with tonights election? A country flush with prosperity, two young, energetic candidates perhaps ready to lead us back to Camelot?

Colbert:No, I'm getting more of a 'Nam vibe. You know, unwinnable wars, inescabable downward spiral, chaos in the streets. That sort of thing."
I'd say that was a pretty good prediction, considering at this point Florida hadn't even been called for Bush yet. The only question left is:
"Stephen Colbert: Great American? Or greatest American?"

Here's the original, before we got Sumner-Redstone'ed. (Fuck you Sumner!)
