I'm generally not a huge fan of Stephen Colbert, but that was brilliant.
 
I can't imagine why you wouldn't like him. The satire is so sharp that I find myself catching a buzz from watching The Colbert Report.

It makes me dream of working in a Writer's Room
 
Honestly, I've never watched it. Or the Daily Show either.

*ducks*
 
*Shrugs.

Eh. You're loss. ;)

It's satire done right.
 
Ha ha ha! Colbert and Daily are the only reasons we'd contemplate paying more for cable than we already do.This woman is crazy! Are we really going to debate semantics when there's a real possibility that a person of African descent (descended from slaves or not) can take the White House? And it's giving a lot more credit than is due to think that a person's degree of "blackness" is really going matter to the majority of the doofuses who vote in this country!!

I disagree. I think it's going to be a HUGE issue.
 
Maybe Debra would also disagree that the word dick can be found in her name.
