Stephen Colbert celebrates: "Barack Obama has finally seen the light! He is not going to release photos of detainee abuse -- and he's reinstituting military tribunals for detainees down in Guantanamo. I knew he was going to be transformative. But who knew he was going to transform into President Bush?"

If Obama truly intends to join the conservative "real world," Colbert says, he's going to need a few things, including "a magical unicorn whose tears cure homosexuality" and "a dictionary where 'socialism' and 'fascism' mean the same thing."
