Jon Cohn Immigrates to Colbert Nation

It's sad that the best discussions on health-care reform happen on parody shows. But it makes me happy to see the excellent Jon Cohn on my teevee.

I always suspected you and Jon Cohn were the same person. Unless you can provide better photographic evidence than this that you're not, I'll continue to assume that.

I was distracted from his cogent points on reform by the fact he appeared to be wearing his dad's suit.

I've thought for a while now that Colbert is better than The Daily Show, but hardly anyone seems to agree. I think that Colbert is more biting in his comentary and gets better guests (and fewer celebrities pushing movies).

The Daily Show should try to top Colbert by getting that Ezra Klein fellow on. I hear he's photogenic and knows a helluva lot about health policy. I'd love to hear his detailed description of how the VHA does health care right here in the good old USA, and how every other industrialized country on earth has managed to extend good health care to 100% of its citizens while spending far less money than we do here. Kristol got on there and sputtered and lied - it would be great to hear a little truth too.

Cohn volleyed with Colbert very effectively and smoothly -- a good segment, well done.
