Conservative and Liberal lines are breaking Right and Wrong

Amy Goodman of DemocracyNow! was on The Colbert Report. Heard snippets on The Laura Ingraham Show, and so I had to find the video:

"I would but we're out of time; thank you so much for stopping by."

Dang Wordsmith. I was enjoying watching this video, but it cut off half-way through. So I watched it again to see if it would play all the way through, but it wouldn't. Is it just me, or is the video flawed? Anyway, for the part that I did see, he does a really good job of making this moonbat look like what she is; a Moonbat! :)

I was able to watch it all the way. It was great! He really cracks me up, and the part about the "distortion" of Pres. Bush is right on target! To her credit, she did keep her cool, for a moonbat.

Thanks for the laugh!

Okay, so this Sgt Thompson spoke with 140,000 soldiers?!? Wow. Stephen Colbert is so funny and is of course, a Democrat in real life, but he brings up very important facts in humorous ways. But good for him.

"Why don't you embed in the insurgency too?!?"

All these people who she brought up - are cowards. How about all these men and women who actually went - the real heroes. STFU lady.

And who killed all these Iraqis? OHHHH ... the insurgents!!

I finally got to see the entire thing, Wordsmith. I loved the way he showed the cover of her book and the fact that Bush's face is distorted. LOL! Also the way he shut her down.

I've been shutting libs down all day. I've been overrun. Seven in one day! It's a record for me to be proud of! I would leave up some of their comments if they weren't using foul language, but it seems they are unable to do that. *sigh*

I only made it through two minutes... and not because it wasn't working... what did I miss?

Also her comment about "thousands of soldiers who have gone AWOL"...unless something's changed, this is my understanding of the numbers; which indicates that the desertion rate has dropped since 9/11 (you have to look past the sensationalistically misleading headline, of course).

Gayle, glad you came back to enjoy it.

skye...I don't know what to make of the current event parallels; the blatant parallels kinda pisses me off, as I enjoy it at the same time; I think BSG is turning into a love-hate guilty pleasure. And, God! Do I hate cliffhangers that make you wait a week!

Mike....*sigh* insert :rolleyes: emoticon.

what did I miss?

I'd explain it to you, but guess what? We're out of time...thanks for stopping by. Mike's America, ladies and gentlemen!

My blood pressure went up 10 points in the first two minutes... I didn't want to risk watching the whole thing.

Besides, I don't think Stephen Colbert is funny. Did you see him at the WH Correspondents Dinner this year?

Yes. And that fell flat; could just be the partisan in me, that failed to see any humor. But by the audience reaction, I think there was a chill in the air, and his humor was a bit too biting for the occasion, and a bit "off-tradition".

Guys like Leno, Stewart, and Colbert are on the Left, politically. But they can still be funny at times, if not all the time; and sometimes, their humor does bat for our side. Their job is in humor, and that can cut across party-lines; and make them unequal-opportunity bashers...yet bashers for both sides, nevertheless.

I thought Colbert was funny at the WH Correspondents Dinner ... it's a roast, they're not suppose to be nice. If you watch all the other dinners, no one is nice to the President or anyone else.

It's a tradition to bash the President; but I believe Colbert's humor was unusually biting and hard-hitting. I think it made some people uneasy, because the jokes seemed "serious" criticism.

I did like his line about him "outing" Joe Wilson...or somesuch.

"100,000" Iraqi civilian deaths?

This should be added to the Goodwin Law of online debating..

Libs love to flog that lie all over the place.

LOL, he was talking about Valerie Plame. The people who invited Colbert obviously knew his comedy ... so it wasn't like it wasn't unexpected. I thought it was very funny. In a round about way, he showed how much the Republicans support Bush but made fun of it at the same time.
