Do I write about the Man? Or the Legend?
They are as one.
Stephen Colbert is the host of The Colbert Report ("report" is pronounced "reh-pore" - as if en francais) seen Monday-Thursday on the Comedy Channel at 11:30 pm, EST, following Jon Stewart's The Daily Show.
Stephen reports (pronounced "re-ports") on the day's events (primarily USA-based) from a hard right perspective.
But it doesn't take too-too much reading between the lines to see where his sympathies lie.
His, (or rather, his character's) ego is as big as all outdoors, vaguely reminiscent of Peter Seller's Inspector Clouseau. There's no indignity of his hero, George Bush's, that he, Colbert, can't rise above.
The show is wickedly funny. Kudos to the writers and kudos to Colbert for pulling it off in the first place, and sustaining it night after night.
And kudos to Son #1 for getting me to watch it in the first place.
Here's a link to a site devoted to Colbert. Watch some clips if you want a chuckle.
