Colbert And Stewart To Bush: Come On Our Shows!


"Why no love? Was it the eight years of nonstop mocking?" Stewart asked. Then, to sweeten the deal, Stewart even offered Bush a set of steak knives and a 1994 McRib sandwich, "virtually waterboard-ed in delicious sauce."

Colbert also promised the former president a smooth interview, previewing his first question: "You: Great president or greatest president?"

He also had high praise for "Decision Points," saying, "it's like 'War and Peace,' but without all that peace."
