Colbert's best joke was where he mocked journalists:

"Here's how it works. The president makes decisions. He's the decider. The press secretary announces those decisions, and you people of the press type those decisions down. Make, announce, type. Just put 'em through a spell check and go home. Get to know your family again. Make love to your wife. Write that novel you got kicking around in your head. You know, the one about the intrepid Washington reporter with the courage to stand up to the Administration? You know, fiction!"

Anyone else pick up on the fact that he admits he's a Kenyan I guess he just  rubs it in our faces now that he wasn't born in America and that he can get away with anything. Wake Up People!!!

kdlt235
since when do presidents do comedy acts? this is very strange to me

Maxwell Smart
The end is coming for the assbleacher, just like Tricky Dicky. Deny, deny, deny ... until the American public cannot take any more of the shocking lies.

WarrantZeus1
That's funny the president makes a better comedian then a president maybe he should have picked a different career but you know what. Since you've  been in office he's just been a big joke the whole time anyways so good job.

Glenn Bate
he sounds like he's presenting a late night talk show, we should call him barack letterman

Blk Tie
joking about true stories...

Hello Layer :)

This is how the White house acts when there is "many" life on the line!.. Go be a stand up comedy Not a President!

Well jeez..if he worked as hard on foreign policies as he does with stand up comic, we wouldn't have so much problems in Syria/Ukraine.  It's your new job Obama, be a stand up comic and and let someone competent work on foreign issues...

It sort of fell flat because nobody knew what was happening but I loved when Obama brought out Kathleen Sebelius to fix the computer glitch with the presentation.

eagles95: Watching the Colbert one now...seriously how no one knew what he was about it mind numbing


Colbert has been doing the best performance art I have seen and managed to get a show and 10 years out of it.  I am betting he could get another 10 years but why not move on to something different.

I recall when his show first started, people honestly believed he was the conservative answer to the Daily Show.  Then the 'Better Know a District' stuff started and for a while people were game to go on the show and talk about themselves and the district.  I think it took 2-3 years before people in Congress figured out what he was doing and (again I might be recalling the details incorrectly) sent out memo's to not go on Colbert's Show or the Daily Show for the interviews.  Yet, every few months he finds one congressman to agree to an interview.

I think I could make a fortune working in DC as a media/social media consultant where my only job is to say NO to the congressmen when they ask if they should send out a tweet or go on a TV show.  Clearly it is a skill missing in DC at the moment.

Congressman: Should I send out this snarky tweet about rape victims?
Me: No.
Congressman: But it's funny because...
Me: I said NO.  Never send a tweet again. In fact, give me your laptop.  You get it back when you get voted out of office.

I saw some people complaining about the jokes from McHale and another Emcee (not Obama) regarding Lindsey Graham.  Give me a break.  The next person who doesn't know which team Graham plays for will be the first.  If the SCLM doesn't want to hear jokes about Little Miss Lindsey's attempts to butch up for the Republican base, they can plug their ears.
