Hey, we’re late in reporting The Colbert Report’s coverage of the candidates mentioning Israel 31 times in the foreign policy debate last Monday night, but it’s great comedy.

Beginning at 1:45 in the video, after flashing robo ‘Israel’ replays, Stephen Colbert:

I was playing a drinking game last night where I took a shot of  Manischewitz every time……every time someone said Israel and by the end of the debate I was totally diabetic.

What stood out most for me in the debate was the constant condescending no nothing smirky half grin spread across Romney’s face whenever Obama was speaking. It did more to sink Romney than anything either of them said, not presidential. Colbert zeroed in on that smile and I loved it. He picked up Brit Hume calling it an “attractive default expression.”

5 minutes into the video Colbert remarked:

That reminds me of a benevolent angel watching me shower.

Colbert signed off the night taking a shot of … you guessed it, Manischewitz.
