Quote of the Day

Stephen Colbert to New York Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney on Tuesday night's Colbert Report:
"Isn't it better for the ladies to be below the glass ceiling than to be standing on top of the glass ceiling with all those men down there lookin' up?"

Carolyn Maloney is the author of a new book about women's rights called Rumors of Our Progress Have Been Greatly Exaggerated, which I'm intrigued to check out.

Watch the show segment here. It's especially funny when Colbert asks Maloney her thoughts on Nathan Petrelli running for her Congress seat on Heroes and then matter-of-factly informs her that Nathan Petrelli can fly.

Oh, Colbert. If I knew you hadn't talked over and interrupted that woman like the narcissistic ass you are, I'd love that quote.

Great title for the book, though. I'd read it just for that.
