At least he stayed with a subject he knows about; himself.

I don’t know why people take him seriously. He’s just a giant clown, and never pretends to be anything more than that.

As a publicity stunt, it’s better than average. Other than that, who gives a s**t?

Bet it would tick him off if a news person called him COAL-BURT, without the French pronunciation, on the air. But, they never would, as he’s this weeks’ democrat poster boy.

Colbert did and excellent job at helping the democrats look like incompetent fools, to our nation and to the entire world.

Notice that Texas R-rep. Lamar Smith kept it going by asking him questions. Smith is someone you may not recognize by sight or by name but he is a Great congressman. He is a hardworking and smart man. He works so effectively for all of us. He has a senior ranking on judiciary committee and I can’t wait until we take that over.

No, I’m not familiar with him, but I have heard his name. Thanks for the heads-up... I’ll pay attention to him now.
