Sharp-eyed reader Jason K. sent in this screen cap from last night’s “Colbert Report,” and given Warming Glow’s status as the Internet’s premiere destination for cats on television, I thought it fitting to lead with this story today.
Unfortunately, the video clip during which the kitty kevlar appears (watch below) is not about keeping our nation’s cats safe from IED blasts; it’s about the midterm elections and Republican Sue Lowden, who’s challenging Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. And while I happen to find feline body armor a much more compelling topic of conversation than health care reform, the silver lining was Colbert holding a live chicken on the air. I believe he borrowed it from Glenn Beck, who I’ve heard has a coop in his dressing room for on-air sacrifices and/or his perverse sexual needs. Sure, it’s just a rumor, but watch Beck’s show and tell me that’s a guy who hasn’t drunk his share of warm chicken blood.
