Stephen Colbert Defends Rick Santorum’s ‘Blah People’ Line

Since Rick Santorum’s photo finish in Iowa, Republican voters are finally starting to listen to him bring the “true, hot and heavy and strictly missionary,” Stephen Colbert said Monday.

Like this line: Santorum, a little more than a week ago, said he doesn’t want to make “bla- people’s” lives better by giving them someone else’s money. Hmm, what was that? Santorum is “pretty confident” he didn’t say black. He says he started to say a word and then “blah” came out.

Colbert totally understands. “Sometimes the tongue gets lazy,” he said. “Probably because it’s Meixca … people.” And don’t trust the media, he added, because it’s controlled by the “jewwwwws … people.”

“Now that might seem anti-semitic, but I’m pretty confident I didn’t say Jews,” Colbert said.
