Colbert Report

Recommended Posts

I've been watching the Colbert Report videos on the web. Really clever send up of ultra right wing nonsense.


Edgey style. At first the interviewees didn't know what to make of Steve's character - he basically attacks them with aggressive utterly absurd arguements. And he is so good at it that they sometimes get put off, or actually (sort of) shot down. Even though its clearly all a spoof, Steve's tone is aggressive and he is very smart; people get a little put off.. which is what the send-up is all about: its a mockery of ridiculously far right-wing bullshit. Its an opportunity to learn to laugh that stuff off and not be taken by it at all. Robert Greenwald did a good job in the recent interview.
