Stephen Colbert's Big Brass BallsEdit
Past recipients include:
Elected as the House Majority Leader to reform the House Republicans, who were "feeling the heat from lobbyist scandals", CNN revealed that Boehner rents an apartment from a lobbyist whose clients allegedly had an interest in legislation that he sponsored. Colbert supposes that as where Boehner lives is public record he therefore knew someone would find out, arriving at the conclusion that he didn't care, even though he ran on a platform of lobbying reform. This must, Colbert summarizes, have taken "muchos huevos grandes".
Jack, a 15-pound clawless tabby, scared a black bear up a tree after it wandered into the backyard of a West Milford, New Jersey home. The bear remained treed for 15 minutes, after which Jack chased the bear up a second tree after the bear attempted to escape. On June 13th, 2006, Colbert gave Jack the award.
