It Could Be Worse
is a featured segment of
the Greatest American Television Show--EVER!!!, The Colbert Report.
It Could Be Worse
is just one of the many gifts the Dr. Stephen T. Colbert, D.F.A.
has bestowed upon all of humankind. Thank you Dr. Colbert, thank you.

It Could Be Worse is Dr. Colbert's way of reassuring America that, despite what the liberal media is saying about our strong economy, things could be worse. And goes on to show how it's always worse in places that aren't America!
