This is really funny stuff. I don't think Eleanor is playing along, I think she really is getting angry during this interview. Either way, it is very entertaining.

I've never actually watched his show, due to his political views, but I've watched a couple of these interviews on YouTube, and they have been very funny.

I don't think Holmes knows what a sense of humor or wit is. I would hate to work for her.

That was great, and fwiw I don't think at all that she was getting truly angry.

It is funny but I have to disagree and say she seemed to be playing along to me.

Funny. "What part of France are you from? Paris?"

I think one of my favorites was Gerald Nadler when Colbert asked him if his nickname was Nads..

My God, I thought it would be amusing, but that was hilariously off the charts.

It's the funniest Colbert bit I've ever seen.

As I said, I am unsure whether she was playing along. If she was, she was good at it. If not, she was very good at keeping cool, and her comebacks were a bit biting. Either way, it was a great give and take.

Now we know--DC is not part of the United States!

And thus she can never be president?

Well, who would elect her President when she missed all those votes?

Elenor does not posses a sense of humor, Ithink he got her good.

She's playing along all the way.

She's pretty funny, too!

The same crazies who voted for Kerry (he doesn't vote either!).

The discussion on U Tube is funny...what Holmes' use of "vanilla" racist. Of course it wasn't, but it is funny to see the tactic used against a minority.

And he corrected her--he's "french" vanilla.

I totally disagree that she was playing along. It is clear that she has no clue who Colbert is. The staff that were surely contacted to setup the interview may have known Colbert somewhat particuarly after the Colbert Roast at the press club gig earlier this year. But whether any of her staff may have seen the show I am sure Ms. Holmes had never seen it herself. Like a dumb lawyer that asks a question that they do not know the answer to Ms. Holmes should never have given an interview to someone from a show/organisation she knows nothing about.

Again: no way is she that good of an actor, political disingenious skills aside.

Forgot to say that that was absolutely hilarious. It was one of the best LOL bits I've seen in a while.

Colbert may satire a liberal once in a while but his whole show is built around being vicious to conservatives.

That was terrific. I think she was playing along. What else has she to do? She isn't going to vote.

Huh? Poltically, this guy is as androgynous as Conan O'Brien.

I came across this clip on http://colbertondemand.com/videos/The_Colbert_Report/Colbert_Interviews_Eleanor_Holmes_Norton

A bump to an old post, but damn this was funny. She was getting so angry.
