    I wonder if he knows Jon Stewart.

    ....Fox News is a lot of things. They're inept, clearly biased and capable of calling people Nazis without actually calling people Nazis. But a shill for the Obama administration? Seriously doubt it. You're thinking of MSNBC.

    Re: Jon Stewart

    Stewart is decent, but I can't stand the whole interaction he has between his reporters. Your reporters are crazy people that say crazy and stupid things, and you attempt to play the sensible and dumbfounded anchor. I get it; move on, already!

    Colbert is better I think, but he does a lot of stuff that isn't funny. He's a master at what he does but he needs better writers. And he needs to bring back the District segment and more on-the-ground reporting segments. And I never thought The Word was that funny, either.

    Well, that explains a lot.

    Personally, I've watched very little of him. To me he fits in the same category as Letterman. That is, fairly talentless stand ups who wrongly think themselves witty.

    I enjoy satire, even about people and ideas I admire, but I insist on it being clever.

    Stewart is hilarious and on point. He makes fun of both sides, though the right general feeds more out. The side reports are funny as hell! Did you see the one where they compared the RNC to Katrina? It was hysterical!

    That's the best part about him. When someone does something stupid, regardless of the party, he pounces on them. Recently, he's had his hands full with FOX hehe.

    I love the Daily Show, but I gotta agree with RightofCenter about Colbert being the man. He's satirical on a Jonathan Swift level.

    Review the old Chevy Chase Weekend Updates to refine your sense of satire.

    I believe my sense of satire is quite highly honed on such works as A Modest Proposal: For Preventing the Children of Poor People in Ireland from Being a Burden to Their Parents or Country, and for Making Them Beneficial to the Public.

    What Swift did in that, Colbert does to a tee.

    Oh god. Jonathan Swift wrote about eating children. I don't think I can take Stephen Colbert seriously if every word coming out of his mouth means the opposite of what it sounds like it means. Sarcasm has no place in my book of humor.
    "All mankind is of one author, and is one volume; when one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language...No man is an island, entire of itself...any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee." - John Donne
