NateGrey: StoPPeRmobile: Mikey1969: StoPPeRmobile: Craptastic: Pants full of macaroni!!: stoli n coke: I also heard Borat isn't really from Kazahkstan.

And Larry the Cable Guy isn't really a cable installer.

And his name is really Dan, and he doesn't really have a hillbilly accent, and he began his comedy career wearing ill-fitted pleated khakis and telling jokes about his gramma, and he's a total douche.

Jealous much?

He's also a one-trick pony who can't give a simple radio interview without falling over himself to say 'Git 'er Done' as many times as humanly possible. The guy is about as funny as a train wreck, and no I'm not jealous, he just has no real talent.

What's your trick?

A Larry the Cable Guy fanboy?

Now I've seen everything.


So now its my 12 year old nephew and StoPPeRmobile

"All the problems we face in the United States today can be traced to an unenlightened immigration policy on the part of the American Indian." -- Pat Paulsen

No comedian has ever run for president to poke fun at how bizarre it can all be. Oh, wait, except for in 1968, 1972, 1980, 1988, 1992, and 1996.

F42: "What is his real agenda here?" he said. "Is it to educate the public about the dangers of money and politics, and what's going on? Or is it simply to marginalize the Republican Party?

To educate the public about the dangers of money and politics, you have to marginalize the Republican Party.


The Republican party is marginalizing itself.

Is it 2006? How many times are Republicans going to victimize themselves over Colbert?
 
2012-01-20 04:32:36 PM  
Chuck Todd is a farking whore, he and his cadre of circle-jerking buddies on Capitol Hill deserve every farking bit of mockery Colbert throws at them. If you expect to be taken seriously then don't be such a transparent douchenozzle.

When a farking flake like Ron Paul starts getting as much support as he has just because he intermingles a few bites of truth with his insane views you know we have a serious problem. Colbert is simply pointing it out.

Leo Bloom's Freakout: Gonad the Ballbarian: Breitbart's core readers (those who DON'T read it for comedy relief) can barely tie their shoes.

Breitbart HAS to explain even the most obvious things that normal people just take for granted.

"Leslie, for our viewers at home who might not know, are centaurs real?"

Yes, just like Santa Claus, ancient aliens, Jesus's divinity, and trickle down economics.


I haven't heard any "official" stance but I would guess that Santorum is in favor of trickle down economics?

MrEricSir: Why are we paying attention to this trolling attention whore again?


Because as the great Romney-bot pointed out, we are an envious people. We dream of having the success and fame of this noble job creator.

Or we enjoy seeing idiots being idiots and pointing out that they are idiots. A) This is the internet, I think there's an orientation class somewhere in the Google if this is your first time and B) It's what makes AFV so popular.

PanicMan: Lando Lincoln: Stephen Colbert is shining a spotlight onto how awful the Citizens United ruling was. The Supreme Court justices that ruled for it probably hate Stephen Colbert more than anything.

His interview last night with John Paul Stevens was pretty awesome.

"He is making a mockery of the system," Todd said. "...Is it fair to the process? Yes, the process is a mess, but he's doing it in a way that feels like he's trying to influence it with his own agenda and that may be anti-Republican."
He cautioned the media to be "careful" about amplifying Colbert's message, and said it should not be treated as "shtick" or satire.
"What is his real agenda here?" he said. "Is it to educate the public about the dangers of money and politics, and what's going on? Or is it simply to marginalize the Republican Party? I think if I were a Republican candidate I would be concerned about that."
Todd concluded by saying that he "idolized" American politics and didn't want to see people become more cynical about them.


Oh cry me a farking river. The system is a total joke, everyone with half a brain realizes that. Colbert can say whatever he wants and if the media wants to report it, so be it - even if its weally, weally mean to the poor GOP. Why can't you leave the Republicans alone!!! They're awfully sensitive after all.

Brother_Mouzone: Colbert is a true American hero. I dont say that facetiously, mockingly or jokingly. He elevates satire to a new level, in fact I bet in 100 years it will be called colberting instead of satire.

He is genius, and everything about this is genius. What if Cain finishes in the top 3 or something? then what? its great.


Colbert's kinda funny, but I really don't get the "genius" level admiration he gets. I mean his satire is really bald, he really overexaggerates, and is basically just silly. Overall it is a really predictable and somewhat tired shtick. To me it is about the comedic level of modern Saturday Night Live -- good for a predictable chuckle and an occasional "did he really do that" kinda fun.

KarmicDisaster: Apparently, you can't really fix stupid.


Well, in a manner of speaking you can, but it's become much more heavily frowned on since the days of Buck v. Bell, and I certainly won't advocate that approach myself.

He consistently goes exactly where people think he shouldn't go, to say exactly what needs to be said. His comments on the Norwegian massacre were some of the most damning words ever said on television about television and the reactionary society we have become, couched in a layer of satirical agreement with the news that can make you giggle at words like 'muslish'. His coining of Wikiality was hilarious because of the whole elephant thing and the defacement of Wikipedia, but at the same time it was pointing out that we have access to such a flood of information that our main way of determining the authenticity of any given bit of information is the number of people who agree with it...the building of 'truth' through consensus.

It's more than just satire, it's Socratic irony of the highest order. That he can mix this with dick jokes and Munchma Quchi is what makes it so fantastic.

I didn't know about the khakis bit. I wonder if YouTube has some pre-"redneck" videos.

Well said. On one hand, the so-called candidates don't need any help in making fools of themselves. On the other, the GOP establishment hates the light he shines on it.

Everybody's gettin' trolled!

I think the admiration comes from the fact that many people do not even notice that it's comedy, and act accordingly.

No, they did not. Somebody else made a movie and called it Highlander 2 -- it's kind of like how George Lucas made Episode 4 first. Eventually, they might make a prequel, but it's completely unrelated to the first movie called Highlander. A similar thing happened with The Matrix.

qorkfiend: Diogenes: Is it fair to the process? Yes, the process is a mess, but he's doing it in a way that feels like he's trying to influence it with his own agenda and that may be anti-Republican.

I like the implication here: "he's being unfair to the process by being anti-Republican."


Remember, kiddies, when a Democrat fails, it's the will of the people. When a Republican fails, it's a Soros-funded, ACORN-backed, Colbert-approved plot to subvert the will of the people.

I'm kinda curious to read it, but I know better than to give Breitbart a click

At least WND spreads the blame around to all the liberal red herrings, but Breitbart and his Soros-hating group of douchebag heroes really can't get past this MSM conspiracy shiat.


Of course he can't; they're the reason none of his totally awesome Objectivist movie scripts ever got optioned. Damn George Soros and his art-hating ways; if not for him, Breitbart's films would have been the first big Randian blockbusters, instead of last year's Atlas Shrugged.
