    The problem isn’t that we can’t take a joke. The problem is that white comedians and their fans believe they are above reproach.... It seems “freedom of speech” has the assumed caveat “freedom of speech — for white men.”
  • OWS Protester Featured on Colbert Report Outed as Scam Artist Forger

    Remember the OWS protestor, Justin Wedes, who along with his sanity-challenged companion, Ketchup, was featured on the Colbert Report as a spokesman for the Occupy Wall Street movement? Camera hog Wedes was notable for his massive self-righteous chip on the shoulder which caused him to give "down twinkles" to what he claimed as the moral failings of the "One Percent." Well, down twinkles to Wedes himself who has been exposed in the New York Post as a scam artist forger who tried to cheat the taxpayers out of nearly $5000 for a government grant despite the fact that his "One...

    The "female-bodied person" named "Ketchup" as she identifies herself must have struggled mightily to suppress her inner loon while being interviewed by Stephen Colbert along with her camera hog Occupy Wall Street companion from Zuccotti Park, Justin Wedes. Although she unknowingly delivered a lot of comedy material such as her self-description and silly GroupThink hand, arm, and finger signals, Ketchup presented a rather calm demeanor thoughout the interview (video below the fold).  In fact, her dead serious manner was what originally kept me from believing that Ketchup was the same ranting person at the tail end of the infamous Edward...

    Being a faithful Catholic doesn’t mean you have to be a joyless one. New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan knows that. When Archbishop Dolan was installed to his post in the Big Apple, an enterprising reporter asked the newcomer if there was anything he would like to condemn. Archbishop Dolan responded in the affirmative. “I condemn instant mashed potatoes and light beer,” he deadpanned. A few years ago, when Washington Cardinal Donald Wuerl visited a Catholic bookstore, the owner approached him and said, “Oh! You’re looking for a book, Father. You must be a Jesuit!” “No,” Cardinal Wuerl replied, “but I’m...

    Stephen Colbert unwittingly reveals a regulatory stranglehold on speech.For the past few months comedian Stephen Colbert has been giving his viewers an education in campaign finance laws — how burdensome and convoluted they can be, and how they stifle political speech. The real joke, however, is that this isn’t what he set out to do.Originally intended as an ongoing comedy skit to mock the Supreme Court’s ruling in Citizens United, the Colbert SuperPAC gag has spun into something of a headache for the self-styled campaign finance “reform” community. Several media outlets have begun to report that the skit is backfiring,...

    That whole up-is-down, black-is-white thing that the Left’s got going does leave a sane person wondering if they’re all off their meds. How else to explain professional blowhard Michael Moore’s appearance on Colbert this week, where he offered up several big heapin’ helpings of crazy. Bet you didn't realize Professor Moore was a scholar and expert on all things Founding Father-related? Or that he and Thomas Jefferson had so much in common? Check it out: Quite a compendium of misleading statements, outright lies, and utter nonsense, no? The coup de grace has got to be that mangling of the legacy...
  • Why the Midterms Matter: The GOP’s agenda has to be stopped.

    Newsweek ^ | 10/23/10 | Jonathan Alter
    The depressed Democratic base needs to ask itself some questions: Do women want more representatives who oppose abortion? Do Hispanics want to see immigration reform postponed? Do young voters want college loans slashed? If they don’t, they’ll set aside whatever valid grievances they may have with Obama and mobilize. If Democrats lose control anyway, maybe nothing too bad will happen. Obama will veto GOP bills, and politics will be paralyzed for two years as the parties jostle for 2012. But a right-wing Republican takeover of Congress and state capitals isn’t something to accept with indifference. Midterms matter, and voters tempted...

    Comedian Stephen Colbert's appearance before a House panel on farm jobs and illegal immigrants made a mockery of one of the most contentious issues of the election season. In playing host to this display, Democrats proved their self-destructive instincts are alive and well.... The type of mockery that plays on cable television doesn't translate well to the halls of Congress, especially when that body is held in such low public esteem and its gravitas is greatly in question. This was not the time for Democrats to make a farce of the process of lawmaking. For his part, Mr. Colbert was...

    When I saw the news that Stephen Colbert was going to testify before Congress to talk about the one day he spent working on a farm, I was ashamed. After his testimony today, I’m not only ashamed, I am angry. But my anger isn‘t so much directed at Colbert as the politicians who thought it’d be a good idea to put on a committee comedy spectacle in the halls of Congress. While some criticized Colbert’s appearance earlier this week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she thought it would be a great idea for the Comedy Central star to give his...

    Comedy Central host Stephen Colbert is slated to testify at a congressional hearing Friday on immigration titled “Protecting America’s Harvest,” two sources have told The Daily Caller. One Republican source said Colbert will be testifying “in character,” the Bill O’Reilly-like muse Colbert uses for his show. A Judiciary Committee spokeswoman, confirming Colbert would testify, said the hearing matter was a “serious issue . . . this is not a TV stunt.” Some Republicans have already expressed unhappiness with Colbert witnessing at the hearing, thinking it would make light of a serious issue. The hearing is before the House Judiciary Committee’s...

    Appearing on Monday’s The Colbert Report on Comedy Central to promote his book, "The Promise," MSNBC political analyst Jonathan Alter – also of Newsweek – asserted that President Barack Obama had "prevented another Great Depression," and declared that Obama had it more difficult than Franklin Delano Roosevelt because he had to "sweep up" like a "shovel brigade" after President Bush, as he used a word that had to be bleeped out for airing. Alter: "He proceeded to make history almost right away, not only because he was the first African-American elected President ... we were all living history. This man...

    As promised, Brian Cox was on The Colbert Report last night, and hit it out of the park. The whole show was better than average (which is saying a lot) but Brian truly rocked! If you missed it (and live in the States) the whole episode is online (Brian's segment is about 13:50 into the episode). Comedy Central won't allow embedding the whole show (sigh), and Brian's segment isn't separated out on the CC site, but right before he was on Colbert ragged on physics and the LHC...

    When Jeff Goldblum passed away, a little bit of all of us died. I will be missed. He couldn’t have said it better. Words can’t describe the great loss we felt when we heard actor Jeff Goldblum had passed away. Luckily he visited the set of The Colbert Report to help us put his death into perspective. In this hilarious video, Colbert takes some time during his show to remember Goldblum, after it was reported that he died in New Zealand while filming a movie. Even when Goldblum himself comes to prove that he is indeed alive and well, Colbert...

She writes that she "feels sorry" for Meg: I really have no business feeling sympathy for a wealthy, pretty, well-connected recent Columbia grad who's already been given a political blog by Tina Brown, who's already been paid a reported high six figures to write on the future of the Republican party, and who, despite it all, was foolish enough to go on "The Colbert Report" on Monday night and call herself "a 24-year-old pro-sex woman."

    They say that many people now get much of their news from satire. Which might make you wonder where they get their satire from. However, researchers at the Ohio State University wanted to get into the bowels of the political satire phenomenon and were perhaps a little surprised at how it is all being digested. They subjected 332 people of varying political bents to a three-minute clip of "The Colbert Report." They then produced their own report, fetchingly entitled "Political Ideology and The Motivation to See What You Want to See in the Colbert Report." The guinea pigs were flawless...

    PRINCETON, N.J. (AP) - Stephen Colbert, the host of his own Comedy Central show, Emmy winner, faux presidential candidate and best-selling author, added to that esteemed collection an award from Princeton University: "The Great Princeton Class of 2008 Understandable Vanity Award." The award was mounted on a mirror. "I have to say, I've never seen anything more beautiful," Colbert on Monday told the 2,611 Princeton graduates-to-be assembled at Class Day, which is held each year the day before commencement. Senior Class President Tom Haine pointed out that the ceremony was held in front of ivy-covered Nassau Hall in an area...

    Funny guys Conan O'Brien and Stephen Colbert have been warring over the airwaves over who first discovered and "made" Mike Huckabee, the once obscure former Arkansas governor, into the popular Republican presidential candidate he is today. Colbert first claimed to have made Huckabee by giving him an appearance on his TV show. O'Brien argued that he made Huckabee by featuring unintentionally funny clips of Huckabee supporter Chuck Norris on his show. Then Jon Stewart got involved, arguing that he made Conan O'Brien — dusting off an old tape in which he interviewed O'Brien on his short-lived talk show from the...

    Rep. Rahm Emanuel (D-Ill.), the Democratic Caucus chairman, has told new Democratic members of Congress to steer clear of Stephen Colbert, or at least his satirical Comedy Central program, “The Colbert Report.” “He said don’t do it … it’s a risk and it’s probably safer not to do it,” said Rep. Steve Cohen. But the freshman lawmaker from Tennessee taped a segment that last week was featured in the 32nd installment of the “Better Know a District” series. Colbert asked Cohen whether he was a black woman. He isn’t. Eyes (but thankfully, not heads) roll in Emanuel’s office when other...

    Comedy Central star Stephen Colbert’s nightly conservative/O’Reilly-mocking show "The Colbert Report" invited on MSNBC host Keith Olbermann Tuesday night to double up on the O’Reilly bashing. It started predictably, before the word "Nazi" came out: Colbert: "Why do you have a problem with my hero, papa bear Bill O'Reilly? You guys have been going at it, hammer and tongs." Olbermann: "Well, Stephen, he's an idiot." Colbert: "You say that like it's a bad thing. I think he sees the world simply, okay? Without all your complicated facts." Olbermann: "We're both saying the same thing. He's an idiot." Did Olbermann really...

I've got the world on a string and all I need is a universal remote. I like the sound of that. First up, Stephen lets us know why his neck hurts. Apparently years ago, while still living...

He has offended Jews with impolitic remarks and made news for scuffling with his wife a day before she filed for divorce. A former boxer, he threatened to slug one House colleague, and has thrown a punch at another. So what in the world possessed him to appear on "The Colbert Report," the late-night Comedy Central show, and allow himself to be goaded into taking a swing at the host, Stephen Colbert? "Because," Mr. Moran explained,...
