Talk is cheap. That's what Stephen Colbert thinks anyway. While many wrote off Rick Perry after an excruciating debate performance last Thursday, the Comedy Central host remains unconvinced that elocution is really all that important. As Colbert points out, "when the moment of truth comes, [the president] pushes the button. He doesn't convince the button to push itself."
