Response to JoePhilly (Reply #3)

4. Colbert does it better.

It's what makes Colbert so go in my estimation. He actually does a better "Fox and Friends" than they do. They sound incoherent and stupid. He actually makes their arguments better than they do.

One of his favorite tricks is when he has some left leaning guest on and he asks the "what's wrong with that" question. They explain the potential downsides or catastrophy associated with a particular strategy that he suggests and his response is something along the line of "And that's good right?"

He never backpeddles from his statements and accepts the natural conclusions of his positions. Fox and Friends just wander all over the place and just deny any downsides.
