The notion that a fake persona’s comedy routine is a threat to the American heartland bears a striking resemblance to the sort of literal-mindedness that leads to inquisitions and the Taliban. If you can’t take a joke, you could always change the channel. But you’ll miss all the fun.
Hi, Kathleen, you stupid bint. My “fake persona” will be as Hitler, and my schtick will be to make jokes about sheenies, kikes, and death camps. Should be a laff riot, eh? If you don’t like it, though, you can always change the channel. But you’ll miss all the fun.
You stupid bint.
BTW, I do understand why they sought out Colbert. They’d like to get the Letterman audience down out of the Depends and truss demographic and into something a bit younger – say, sixtyish.
