Colbert went after the bill Chism and Jeff Smith introduced into the house, noting how well “a house devided cannot stand” worked in the past. He also made reference to those Smith’s mustache (“dead shrimp”).
He invited on a guest, Cliff Sloan, who described who well nullification has worked in the past. Colbert said, “Where does it say in the Constitution” that the federal government wins. The guest immediately cited the Supremacy Clause. There was a little more to it than that, but, essentially, game, set, match.
