Stephen Colbert has officially, for now, put his full support behind Texas Governor Rick Perry (with an 'A!') for Republican candidate for the 2012 election. He broke down the Governor's performance at this week's debate on 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central), and liked what he saw.
Perry got his biggest applause without saying a word. As Brian Williams was posing him a question, he mentioned that Perry's state of Texas had executed 234 death row inmates, which is more than any governor in modern times. Before he could even go on, the crowd erupted in enthusiastic support.
