Its time to stop the charade of someone pretending to be a political pundit.

Ben Shapiro, just stop it. You're not fooling anyone.

With as few people that actually watch the late show, I wonder if Ben Shapiro gets some sort of fee or payment for any additional people he may cause to watch the late show. I actually hope there is some sort of payment otherwise it seems his primary goal is mutual gratification through abuse with those he espouses as having the wrong idea.

here's his piece that townhall.com published when he was 19

http://townhall.com/columnists/benshapiro/2003/08/27/transfer_is_not _a _dirty_word/page/full

"Here is the bottom line: If you believe that the Jewish state has a right to exist, then you must allow Israel to transfer the Palestinians and the Israeli-Arabs from Judea, Samaria, Gaza and Israel proper. It's an ugly solution, but it is the only solution.

...

If there was "room in Germany for the German populations of East Prussia and of the other territories," as Churchill stated, there is certainly room in the spacious Muslim states of the Middle East for 5 million Palestinians and Israeli Arabs. If Germans, who had a centuries-old connection to the newly created Polish territory, could be expelled, then surely Palestinians, whose claim to Judea, Samaria and Gaza is dubious at best, can be expelled.

It's time to stop being squeamish. Jews are not Nazis. Transfer is not genocide. And anything else isn't a solution."

he learned early that he could make money from the american right-wing by writing bullshiat and has been doing it ever since

It is nearly impossible to watch an episode of The Colbert Report without coming away with a viscerally negative response to conservatives.

If you're really concerned about visceral hatred of conservatives, you'll do your part and stop writing, dick

I think you are putting too much thought into it.  Consider instead that Ben Shapiro just wanted attention.

Or perhaps if conservatives are really concerned about getting a viscerally negative response they should stop with the stupid, spiteful bullshiat.

Anyone else think that all these conservative pundits just now realized that Colbert has been playing a character this whole time?

Yeah just keep antagonizing the professional smart ass.  Great timing too since aforementioned smart ass is in the very near future going to have a vastly larger audience to humiliate you in front of.

I've never even seen Colbert's show and I have a viscerally negative response to conservatives.
I love the way he (and it's not just him) assumes that Colbert is just going to adapt his current act  to the show, and not fall closer in line with the traditional model of monologue/interview/skits/musical act.

cameroncrazy1984: Have you seen Ferguson's show? I'm sure it'll be like that.


I like Ferguson's show, and I do like Colbert, but I don't want him necessarily doing THAT kind of show either.

I wish some American-based late night talk show would ape some of the formats I see from the counterparts in Britain where the slate of guests for a given show either be interviewed ALL at once or at least have more interaction with each other. Colbert's a diverse enough talent that perhaps that kind of format would needlessly marginalize/neuter him somewhat, but, seriously...enough of this one-at-time 8-10 minute interview crap.

Of course not! It's not the substance of who conservatives are and what they stand for, but how it's presented! He presents it in an honest way, so that makes them look bad. Silly!

I read the transcript from Rush's show regarding this and he didn't seem to give much of a crap, near as I can tell.


RUSH:  Do you really care what I think about that?  (interruption)  Do you care what I think of Colbert getting Letterman's gig?  (interruption)  You really care about what I think about that?  (interruption)  Well, I'll give you the short version. CBS has just declared war on the Heartland of America.  No longer is comedy going to be a covert assault on traditional American values, conservatives.

They don't want that anymore.  It's the media planting a flag here.  I think it's maybe the media's last stand, but it's a declaration.  There's no unity in this hire.  They've hired a partisan, so-called comedian to run a comedy show.  So that's what I think.  Cool.  Fine.  Satisfied?  (interruption)  Good.



The word "Blase'" comes to mind.

Doubt it. His show is in the 12:35 slot which networks give a lot more flexibility on than they do the 11:35 slot. But hopefully they won't neuter Colbert too much.

If I remember correctly, Ferguson said that he didn't want to do the 11:35 slot because he didn't think he could adapt to it well.

That's basically my dream for the show: Colbert as himself, some intelligent guests, and oddball, confuse your grandparents comedy. Maybe Amy can come on as his band leader or something.

I think the pundits knew.  The echo chamber the pundits live in probably thought that he was just some guy that like 50 people watched on TV.  They just knew he wasn't popular because they all talked about how nobody they knew watched Colbert.

I honestly hope CBS doesn't cave. A week or two and no one will care.

I've noticed Fallon has been slightly more "conservative" this week with guests and jokes. I hope it's not a programming change by NBC to appeal to older viewers, but just a random thing.
