    Which do you like better?

    The Daily Show, or The Colbert Report?

    Personally, I like The Colbert Report better, nothing like good satire.

    Both are funny, but they are two different shows with different formats using different types of humor. Personally I like the Daily Show better, I just love watching Jon destroy people when he reveals hypocrisy and doubletalk through his satire.

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    I don't watch TV.

    So, neither, or both, depending.

    There's always online links, that's how I get my fix.

    Another part of the Dailt Show that's better is the correspondents. The Colbert Show is pretty much a one man show, which gets old to me after some time.

    I prefer Stewart, he is a tough interviewer and does more to point out real issues.

    They're both old and the schtick is predictable... I like neither though both have their rare moments when they're funny.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I like them both, but prefer Stewart a little more. Colbert's interviews are funnier, but the two previous segments Stewart gets the nod.
