February 26, 2009 NailingEdit


  • a legendary singer, songwriter who Stephen will inform him that "freedom" is just another word for "Stephen Colbert"
  • Dr. Colbert greeted him with a hearty "Hey, old man!"
    • but that is because Stephen admires him because he settled on his look when he was in his mid-forties
  • Kristofferson stays on the better side of rugged without slipping into "grizzled"
    • there's a fine line between the two
  • Kristofferson worries about waking up one day to find that he's become haggard
    • Kristofferson knows Merle Haggard and isn't put off by the idea
  • the two men then discussed Kristofferson's exfoliation routine
    • he said his father caught him exfoliating once and whipped him
  • Dr. Colbert quickly changes the subject to how he feels about his guest
    • Stephen isn't sure how he feels about him (he's too complicated making pigeonholing difficult):
      • he was an U.S. Army captain, who flew choppers for an oil company and yet he's against the Iraq war
      • he's a country music star and a Rhodes Scholar
      • he's a friend of Willie Nelson's and he's seen Barbra Streisand naked (Kristofferson admits that seeing Streisand was preferable to seeing Nelson)
  • Kristofferson has an anti-American slogan prominently displayed on his webtube:
"God bless Obama."
  • Dr. Colbert wants to know how Kristofferson can be both a country music star and a liberal at the same time
    • it's like being a vegetarian polar bear
  • Kristofferson considers himself "left" of liberal
  • Kristofferson has hung out with
    • Waylon
    • Willie
    • Johnny Cash
  • Dr. Colbert wants to know why country songwriters don't write protest--or socially conscious--songs anymore (like Cash's Man in Black)
    • he's glad they don't anymore, but he still wants to know why
  • Kristofferson explained that country music has always been conservative
    • he feels he fell into the "folk-rock" category
"freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose."
  • Dr. Colbert posits that "freedom is just another word for America"
    • even though America has nothing left to lose
      • Kristofferson liked the one that goes: "freedom's just another word for Stephen Colbert"
  • nude scenes (like his last scene of Star Is Born) are not kind things to do when you're an old man
    • Dr. Colbert reminds him, however, that if he did it during the show, he'd get great ratings
  • they go to a break and Kristofferson promises to do a song with (or without) clothes


  • song: "Help Me Make It Through The (To)Night"
