Colbert: Romney Connects With Average Joes By Insulting Them In Front Of Wealthy Donors

Stephen Colbert is glad to see Mitt Romney finally connecting with regular folks. At a recent fundraiser, Colbert said, Romney once and for all dispelled his image of a “detached, tone-deaf, body-snatching pond creature.”

At the Mississippi fundraiser, Romney told wealthy donors that they are probably doing fine. But the waiters and waitresses serving them, not so much. Romney said: “I know that people in this room are probably doing relatively well … but not everyone in America is doing so well right now … the waiters and waitresses that come in and out of this room and offer us refreshments, they’re not having a good year.”

“I’m guessing their year felt worse and worse as the night went on,” Colbert said Wednesday. “That’s how a candidate connects with the average people. There’s nothing blue collar Joes like more than having their struggles pointed out in a room full of rich people they are serving.”
