The political pairing of Messrs. Donald Trump and Alex Jones recently scored a write up by their shared nemesis, the Gray Lady herself, the New York Times. Clearly a Times-reader, Stephen Colbert used…
Elon Musk talked about colonizing Mars with Colbert on Wednesday’s “The Late Show.” When asked what he suggests be done to make Mars livable, Musk simply replied, “Drop thermonuclear weapons over the poles.” So…

As you have most likely already heard, Stephen Colbert will be taking over for David Letterman as host of The Late Show. Some are lamenting this decision, while others are rejoicing. Colbert…
Looks like Obama’s playing the hand Bush dealt him:
This is brilliant. Looking forward to seeing how far Colbert can go with this. Ryan J. Reilly writes on Talking Points Memo:
Stephen Colbert doesn’t “want to be the one chump” without any unlimited corporate money going to his political action committee. That’s why he showed up the the Federal Election Commission building in D.C. to formally request an advisory opinion on behalf of “Colbert Super PAC,” a proposed independent expenditure only committee able to accept unlimited corporate, individual, political committee and labor contributions.
Accepting unlimited funding is “a right as described by the Citizens United case,” Colbert said in response to a question from Politico’s Ken Vogel. “I believe the Citizens United decision was the right one, there should be unlimited corporate money, and I want some of it. I don’t want to be the one chump who doesn’t have any.”
Colbert said he expected the FEC to take his request seriously.
Stephen Colbert, Inspired by Senator Jon Kyl’s Big Planned Parenthood Lie, Introduces Twitter’s #NotIntendedToBeAFactualStatement
Remember in Friday’s “Rewrite” when we showed you the big lie Sen. Jon Kyl told on the Senate floor about Planned Parenthood? The lie that “well over 90%” of Planned Parenthood’s services go to abortions?
The lie that Sen. Kyl’s staff later said “was not intended to be a factual statement” — a remark Lawrence [O’Donnell] called “one of the strangest clarifications in Senate history?” Well, we weren’t the only ones who took notice. So did Stephen Colbert.
Comedy Central’s February 14, 2011 broadcast of The Colbert Report, ridicules Glenn Beck’s reasoning behind the riots in Egypt. Instead, Colbert links the uprising to King Tut’s missing penis.
What’s to be done about our culture’s loss of a notion of what’s sacred? From the Colbert Report:
Stephen Colbert with Amy Chua, the suddenly (in)famous strict Chinese mother, on the Colbert Report:
“If you’re going to have a rally where hundreds of thousands of people show up, you might as well go ahead and make it about something.”
Bill Maher lambasts the Jon Stewart/Stephen Colbert “Rally to Restore Sanity” as misguided in its call for “moderation” at a time when clear-headed people should be standing up firmly for what’s right. Right on, I say.
I finally saw the 1988 movie “They Live” today and realized what Peter Chamberlin is saying with his blog title‘There Are No Sunglasses’. I also saw a little of the Stewart and Colbert sanity/fear…
No doubt the our two revered political comedians will be sparring for weeks to come with Glenn Beck over whose rally drew more people, but for now, let’s focus on what, if…
Stephen Colbert testified before Congress recently, and a good amount of the media have been trying to deflect from his message by accusing him of “wasting time.”
Isn’t it interesting though that they didn’t think it was such a waste of time when, a few years earlier, Chris Farley made an appearance there?
First Elmo, then Kevin Costner, and now Stephen Colbert gets to testify before Congress at an immigration hearing entitled “Protecting America’s Harvest.” With Colbert testifying in Congress and Jon Stewart’s “Rally to Return Sanity,” the lines between politics and political comedy are increasingly blurred. From New York Daily News:
It’s no joke — Stephen Colbert will testify before Congress.
Colbert will speak alongside United Farm Workers President Arturo Rodriguez.
The comedian spent a day working at a farm in New York last month after Rodriguez came on the show to discuss UFW’s “Take Our Jobs” campaign, which challenges the view that illegal immigrants are stealing jobs from Americans.

Stephen Colbert makes the English feel even worse about BP and “The Hand of Clod.” Genius stuff.

Are there aliens out there? And if there are, do they have their own Martian Jesus or do they all just automatically go to hell until they come to Earth and accept ours? I don’t know, but it’s nice to see the Catholic church is finally catching up with the Scientologists. Our operating thetans need all the help we can get in the battle against Xenu.
