I am not sure why, but I found last nights show extra funny. Well at least until the interview.
The Site gags with Alaska’s Senator Ted Stevens. Showing an Old Coot and then Grandpa Simpson.
The explanation of the Internet Neutrality debate in Congress being demonstrated using the 3D Pipes Screen saver and showing various things going through a pipe was funny, but made hilarious by the disclaimer “courtesy of Ted Stevens Brain”.
The crazy San Francisco resident, who moved his family into the “gayest neighborhood in America” and then had the nerve to bitch about the blatant gayness of it, might be an all time classic. I lost it during the interview when the storeowner was being bleeped for everything he said except SUCKING.
Just a great episode.
Colbert found a Congressman with a good sense of humor. He was from the second district of Washington. I did not catch his name, but he took the abuse with a very well.
I think Mort Zuckerman actually got the better of Steven. It might be the first time I saw a guest handle his craziness and make some good points. I enjoyed the exchange that boiled down to
Mort: I have known Kerry for 30 years and I voted for Bush anyway.
Steven: So you like Bush?
Mort: NO, I think he is the worst President since at least Carter.
Steven: Then why did you vote for him?
Mort: Kerry would have been worse.
I do not agree with the last line, but I still found it very funny.
