    Stephen Colbert is Genuine?

    (couldn't find another poll like this)

    Do you think that Stephen Colbert is genuinely conservative even though he plays the role of a sarcastic conservative?

    In my university I see a lot of conservative kids who think he should be the new face of the GOP; they truly think that.

    [sarcasm]I agree, he should be the face of the GOP.[/sarcasm]

    They must not watch his show....

    In reality, I think he's a comedian first. The greatest opportunity for him was in the form of a fake news broadcaster, so he took it. I don't think he's on a mission to attack republicans or conservatism, as is John Stewart. He simply knows his audience and knows how to entertain.

    I do not know or care. I do not watch his show.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I can see why you wouldn't James. He makes a mockery of conservatism.

    I find very little of it funny. At all. Even when he's making fun of conservatives. However the opening for show is pretty creative.

    Of course he isn't conservative. Colbert (when he's not in character mode) has said he's a Democrat. He endorsed Kerry in 2004, and kinda endorsed Obama in 2008.

    Colbert is a gag. Some don't get the gag but of course that's because they're the brunt of the gag.

    If I had to venture a guess, I would say he's probably liberal. But his show isn't as good as The Daily Show.
