I have to wonder if Colbert is gonna do something about the Chuck Norris PSA.

It involved Obama being reelected causing a thousand years of darkness.
[up]

well, on the bright side, thats another thousand years where we wont have to worry about the Rapture.
Going Forth!
I love Estaban Colberto.

Legendary Outlaw? ...Forget it.
America Again: Rebecoming the Greatness We Never Weren't

I am so buying this book.

don't forget his weakness vfor turkish delight, or the history of the croissant.
Slaying all enemies in the Name of the Goddess of the Force!
[up]That segment was epic.

I learned more about the Ottoman Empire in those couple of minutes than I have in rest of my life.

[up] I think I should've watched that episode in World History 10th grade...

So...Colbert certainly liked the debate.

So watched the latest episode, Colbert does realise that Norway isn't part of the EU, right?

Legendary Outlaw? ...Forget it.
It's still in Europe.

There is a line in there that indicates that the bit knows Norway isn't in the EU, but it's not made obvious.

Well, I never knew Obama was spacegay with his roommate, but now I do.

This changed everything.

Rmoney / Ryan 2012!

Just kidding. I just found that segment hilarious.

There was something sad about that corn palace.
Legendary Outlaw? ...Forget it.
So, this isn't really to do with the show, but apparently Stephen has a cameo role in the Hobbit trilogy (and for those who think that will be distracting, let's remember that Bret McKenzie was in LOTR).

Plus the Hobbit isn't quite as serious as The Lord of the Rings was. Though I don't really know what he'd be. Apparently he's in the 2nd/3rd film. A lakeman?

I'm adding this thread to my watchlist. Yay for Colbert! I loved the "ball juicing" bit during Tuesday's segment on Lance Armstrong. He carried the joke over to last night's show as well.

Ironically, the pursuit of the definition of happiness does not appear to be a happiness-maximizing behavior.
I liked the metaphorical treadmill segment. [lol]

Shouldn't Colbert be an eagle in the Hobbit? Or for irony, that guy who turns into a bear (this suggestion is more of a joke).

That one kid at the end who was yelling was great.

Double post, but I thought Colbert would be even less composed.

And Andrew Sullivan is a creepy weird man.

Colbert was having a hard time staying in character. You could tell he wanted to cheer along with the audience but had to keep his game face on.

It's episodes like this which make me think if Colbert hadn't landed a job in fake news, he would still have made for a brilliant improv comic.

Holy shit, did he just showed everyone how to launder money!

I don't remember when Stephen started making sexual jokes about Doris Kearns Goodwin, but it is hilarious.

My apologies to Doris Kearns Goodwin.

[up][up] Everyone involved with the SuperPAC industry already knows how to do what Colbert documented last night. That's the point; he was showing the entire world how it works, so we can get properly outraged about it.
