Comedian pledges to wipe Vermont off the map

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

Vermont could be a target of nuclear rockets if the Colbert Nation gets its way. Comedian Stephen Colbert suggested Tuesday night that his following, which he calls Colbert Nation, should replace China on the United Nation's Security Council. He also had a list of other demands, mocking Iran's ongoing clash with the international community over its nuclear program.

"I demand the international community respect my right to continue developing the Colbert Nation's nuclear program. It is for energy-- even though I have pledged to wipe Vermont off the map. We will drive you into Lake Champlain!" Colbert said.

Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy responded with a tweet saying clearly Colbert has never heard of the Green Mountain Boys.
