Shalala gets the Colbert treatment



U of Miami president Donna Shalala appeared last night on the Colbert report, where the host wondered how Bill Clinton's former Secretary of Health and Human services secretary is using her retirement from federal government to destroy America.

"Were the cabinet meetings frequently interrupted so you could change the bong water?,'' Colbert wondered.

He quizzed her on her support for Hillary in '08 and on her Peace Corps stint in Iran: "Did you learn anything about the Iranians that would help us understand them better so that we might invade them better?"
