Stephen Colbert says that Barack Obama push himself as the anti-war candidate but didn’t go so far as to promise “peace and love.” Colbert reviews a Fox radio broadcast that implies a caller is a hippy for urging an era of “respect and cooperation.”
Fox host mocked the caller by playing “The Age of Aquarius.” In his best hippy voice, the host chided, “Far out, man. What’s it going to start, man? Hey, man, you said ‘cooperation,’ man.”
Colbert observed, “If you say anything in hippy-speak it’s not true.”
