Late Night Humor

Stephen Colbert on the GOP demand that Obama ratchet up his Iranian rhetoric: "Exactly! Seeing these protesters struggle and not speaking boldly and loudly is like seeing a drowning man and not standing on the shore shouting: 'Hey, look at me! I'm a lifeguard!'"

This is the best he can do? Lame.

Yeah, Stephen, when the supposed leader of the free world says something, it's meaningless. You go with that, cowboy. That is SOOOOO funny.

I'm ROFL here, seriously.

Yeah, I agree with marcopohlo.

Stephen has lost his bite in a big way since Obama was elected. Dare I say that his show has descended into trivial silliness with occasional, mild jabs at political satire that's so safe and obvious it's painful.

Where's the Stephen who showed up to the 2006 WH Correspondents' Dinner?

Stephen gets it. As much as the whole thing going on in Iran is compelling, and as fragile is the self-concept of our Neocon super-patriots that they must regularly repeat the mantra "The US is the greatest -- in every way" and use that as their primary debating point, the bottom line about Iran is the following: IT IS NOT ABOUT US. IT IS ABOUT THEM, AND WE ARE ONLY MARGINALLY RELEVANT.

Neocons: Please feel free to make at least a little attempt to understand history and look at things from their point of view. Radical concept: there is more than one point of view, and that of the other guy matters.
