I’ve been completely silent on the whole Colbert thing. Frankly, I don’t think that there is anything that can be said about it, that hasn’t already been said. My opinion? Honestly, it wasn’t great comedy, but at the same time, I don’t think it was supposed to be. What Colbert did was look Bush right in the face and tell the truth. It was probably not that funny, but Colbert’s comments, as well as the media reaction that followed, were highly important moments for alternative media.
AlterNet has an article up that perfectly describes what this whole Colbert incident means.
