I love the colbert report
and I've been reading so much about this great truthiness to power speech. I finally got around to watching it. I gotta tell ya, it was okay, but it was just not that funny. I think this TIME article nails it and analyzes it a lot better than I can (hey, I'm not getting PAID to ramble on about it). I wanted to like it. I wanted to laugh. I usually do laugh at Colbert, yes, even when he is skewering the Regime. But this speech was dull.
I wonder if he, Colbert himself, has been interviewed about all this hero worship? Does he think he "stuck it to the man" or was he just trying to do his routine? Does he think there's a conspiracy to silence him, or does he think he was just off his game? If anybody knows what Colbert thinks about it all, please share.
I like Claudette Colbert okay I guess. But the movie The Egg and I was nowhere near as good as the book. Which is great. Read the book.
