Talk about "The Pot calling the Kettle black!"
Politically, I think it's fair to observe that we've reached that point of partisan purity wherein a certain activist segment of the American left has decided, en masse, to pretend to believe a whole number of things that are objectively false (including, in this case, Colbert's genius) - and they have decided to do so in order to build consensus and then use groupthink as a political bludgeon, even it comes at the expense of their integrity and intellectual honesty.
Some may have considered Colbert's speech last night to have been in bad taste. I don't happen to share that belief. But I would like Jeff, or anyone else... to point out one falsehood in the "facts," he presented.
I will agree with my Right Wing Brethren that by commedy standards, (Number and length of laughs), he bombed. But he made some powerful points, and I for one am just satisfied that they are being discussed.
