Aw, poor Colbert. With this and Obama winning, he's going to have a breakdown on the Report tonight.

TBH I never liked Colbert. I was moved by his crying last night, though

His problem was that he seemed "too French."

And I can't decide whether I like or am annoyed by the reference in the second picture. TYVM for the 726,361,091st allusion to that Spider-Man cover, I guess.
