A Hero For the Left

While getting mediocre reviews for the comedy of it, Steven Colbert has become somewhat of a cult hero for his cutting up of President Bush to his face. It is apparently a sentiment widely shared, not necessarily limited to the great Codemorse.

For my part, I read it and think that it's very funny. I laughed out loud in my office. It's obnoxious satire, told with the same smugness the South Park kids made so famous in their skewering of the hybrid driving San Fransisco crowd. But it's vital, and necessary. And I think it is what makes this country the best in the world. [Pardon the American exceptionalism.]
