My new favorite show. . .

Something really amazing has been happening with me lately.  I think I have fallen in love with the Colbert Report.  Stephen Tyrone Colbert is so so so so funny.  I used to watch him on Jon Stewart, but I didn't get how hilarious he was until recently.  First of all, I like the spoof on parties that he does.  I don't believe he's really republican or democrat.  I've seen him make fun of republicans as much as democrats, and honestly his stuff is just really funny.  He basically has tons of satire in his approach.


Stephen was born in Washington, D.C. and his name used to be pronounced "coal-bert".  He chose to change the pronunciation he uses now when he was at Northwestern University.  He is married with three kids and lives in New Jersey.
I am still a huge Jon Stewart fan, but his show doesn't make my face hurt anymore.  


With quotes like this - 


"I can't prove it, but I can say it."
"I just think Rosa Parks was overrated.  Last time I checked, she got famous for breaking the law."
"You shouldn't listen to us at all if you're looking for information. We don't take ourselves seriously on any level; we're just comedians."
" I must confess that I've never trusted the Web. I've always seen it as a coward's tool. Where does it live? How do you hold it personally responsible? Can you put a distributed network of fiber-optic cable "on notice"? And is it male or female? In other words, can I challenge it to a fight? "  - All Stephen Cobert

How can you not love this guy?


This is about one of the funnies scenes I've seen in a long time.  I almost wet myself I laughed so hard.  http://www.colbertnation.com/the-colbert-report-videos/406796/january-24-2012/grim-colberty-tales-with-maurice-sendak-pt--1

Seriously if you have a few minutes you have to watch it.

I always loved Colbert, but I would be lying if I said part of the appeal wasn't how attracted to him I am.
