Monday night, while hundreds of people met U.S. Rep. Jared Polis in Boulder to discuss health care, a pre-taped segment featuring Polis appeared on Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report.”

In the bit, Colbert gets the congressman to beer-bong a Coors Light, and mentions nationally known Boulder staples such as Celestial Seasonings (the host crowns Boulder “the tea-bagging capital of America”) before getting down to business — awkward business.

“Who has the Rocky Mountain oysters to replace Sen. Mark Udall in the 2nd District? Why it’s Jared Polis, the first openly gay man to win a congressional seat.”
