Sen. Byron Dorgan, D-N.D.

Dorgan goes face-to-face with Colbert

Email

A few minutes into an interview between Byron Dorgan, Democratic senator from North Dakota and bombastic faux-conservative Stephen Colbert about banking modernization, there was this exchange:

"To be fair, you are the senator from North Dakota; do you guys have ATMs yet?"

"Let me tell you what we don't have. We don't have banks that are too big to fail, and we don't have failing banks."

The audience, obviously not dyed-in-the-wool conservatives, clapped wildly.
