the colbert report: asian guy with obama



Check out this great clip of Konrad Ng, Barack Obama's brother-in-law, getting some attention on The Colbert Report. Colbert's stark analysis of Obama's moment at the DNC was foiled:

"They got a young guy, and an old guy. They got an white guy and a black guy. What's the matter—couldn't find an Asian guy? [Camera shot of Konrad.] Noooo! Asian guy. Gotta get one of those."
That's right, Stephen. No good presidential campaign is complete without an Asian guy up on the stage. Meet Konrad Ng. (Yes, Konrad has seen this, and says he "had a good chuckle.")
