Stephen Colbert admits Wii addiction

Comedy Central host beats up Congressional leader in boxing

Comedy Central pundit Stephen Colbert has taken on every Internet phenomenon from Wikipedia to Gawker Media. Now, thanks to a YouTube link from Gizmodo, you can see the "Colbert Report" host admit his addiction to Nintendo's Wii because it lets him live out his fantasy of pummeling future House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

Naturally, Colbert's confession of Wii love might get some heat because it involved, well, beating up a woman. This female Craver, however, is pretty sure that with a little bit of practice she could take on Mr. Colbert and make him cry like a tree-hugging bleeding-heart San Francisco hippie pinko commie liberal.
