Last Night on Late Night: Does Stephen Colbert Fear Conan?

Last night on The Colbert Report, host Stephen Colbert played on his upcoming "March to Keep Fear Alive" by displaying children's drawings of the things that they fear the most. Colbert mistook one girl's greatest fear, an orange-haired circus clown, for Conan O'Brien, prompting him to say, "I'm with you there." We can't wait for November! Up next on The Daily Show, Naomi Watts sits quietly while host Jon Stewart mocks her Fair Game co-star Sean Penn for not doing press because he's "somewhere, in camouflage, dressed like Colonel Kurtz." Wrapping things up on The Late Show, it's Stephen Colbert again, this time floating the terrifying thought of a hundred thousand Paul Shaffer clones showing up to his march on Washington.
