Wait, what? Fast Eddie was a guest on the first episode of the Colbert Report since returning from their Christmas break on Comedy Central last night to discuss his comments about America becoming a nation of wussies due to the two day postponement of the Eagles-Vikings game a week ago in Philadelphia because of the threat of snow. Rendell responded to Stephen Colbert's question about how America is becoming wussified by babbling some crap about China being big, bad, and in charge. Also, in 1947 they played a football game in Philadelphia going upfield both ways, in a blizard, and without shoes. Or something. [video below]
The rub of it all? After complaining about what a bunch of wussies Americans are becoming, Rendell admits that after leaving the office of the Governor in the near future, he's most worried about not being able to drive because he's been chauffeured around for 20+ years.
To recap: The Gov. complains about the cancellation of the football game due to safety concerns over driving conditions on area highways during a potential blizzard and then admits he's not even comfortable driving himself?
What a wuss.
