Wednesday night on “The Colbert Report,” host Stephen Colbert and actor Alan Cumming paid tribute to the disastrous Brad Paisley song featuring LL Cool J, “Accidental Racist.” Cumming, who is openly bisexual, but currently married to a man, stood in for Cool J in a performance of the song “Oopsie Daisy Homophobe.”

In light of how bad the Brad Paisley song is, Colbert said, there is only one alternative.

“This level of such unifying suckage,” he said, “has inspired me to write my own awful song.”

He then welcomed Cumming, who is currently starring in a Broadway version of Shakespeare’s “MacBeth” that takes place in a psychiatric ward, to the show.

To the tune of “Accidental Racist,” a cowboy-hatted Colbert crooned, “To the man stretching next to me at the Crunch gym down on Main, I hope you understand when I told you ‘God hates fags,’ the only thing I meant to say is I’m a Skynyrd fan.”

Cumming rapped, “Hey, Mr. Straight Man, I wish you understood, how it feels to live in the world when you look this good.”

“I’m just a straight man,” Colbert sang on the chorus, “a certified titty fan.”

Surely world peace can’t be far behind.
