What do you really think of the Colbert study?

Conservatives think he's on their side, Liberals think he's with them. I say it just means that he's doing his job by making everyone laugh! Watch this clip (yes it's on Huffpo, but it's just a comedy bit) and tell me that he's only talking to one side!

  • I agree, if everyone is laughing then he's just doing his job. Good for him!

  • Hahaha! You're not supposed to take him seriously! He's joking. My only point is that if everyone thinks he's on their side then doesn't that just mean that he's doing his job well?

  • i dont have a side, but i think most anyone should be able to tell when he's serious & when he's being sarcastic. ive watched some of his interviews where he lets his character down & you can tell how he truly feels about an issue...usually it has to do w/ religion.

    i think he's a comedic genius! being able to play off of both side's stupidity while still making each side feel like he is on their side...makes for GREAT comedy!

  • Uh, I know anon :41. That's why I said that. I could never take his show or character serious when it's on Comedy Central. Duh.

  • Love him and Jon Stewart. I see him as a comedian, not a dem or repub

  • Although they make fun of pundits from all networks, both The Colbert Report and The Daily Show are obviously liberal. It is clear that John Stewart was supporting Obama and that Stephen Colbert is mocking conservatives. Watch his "anti" gay marriage commercial. If you can't tell he's making fun of the gay haters, you're just not very smart.
