VIDEO: Comedian Colbert Pokes Fun at the North Dakota He Forgot

BISMARCK (AP) — Comedy Central’s Stephen Colbert may know a lot of congressional districts thanks to his tongue-in-cheek “Better Know a District” series, but someone should maybe mail the comedian a tongue-in-cheek map of North Dakota.

In Monday’s The Colbert Report, conservative-mocking Colbert included North Dakota in a Super Tuesday punch line. Colbert, in his typical deadpan delivery, said the night could belong to candidate Mitt Romney because he could win Vermont, Virginia, Idaho and Massachusetts.

Colbert said Georgia, Tennessee and Ohio were less certain.

Then, the punch line: “There are also three primaries in states I can’t remember — but if any of the candidates can remember, that would give them a huge advantage.”

Those were North Dakota, Alaska and Oklahoma.
