Yes, he was awesome.

7. They finally hired someone who isn't white!
I get sick of them making fun of the republican party being made of rich white guys when they have NO diversity on their staff.(At least no one in front of the camera).

Oh and I did enjoy the new reporter.

8. That bit was amazing
I was going to post something about it.

Front to back that might be the strongest thing the Daily Show has done in a LONG time.

Absolutely savage. I think Colbert has generally outclassed the Daily Show on sheer hard-hitting stuff, but last night TDS showed that it still has sharp fucking claws.

"Over the years we've grown accustomed to thinking of ourselves as you think of us, tiny abstract drops in an oil field of possibility..."

"September 11th... Tough day, great opportunity."

That's the stuff, right there.

12. That is very funny, pointed humor.
But in a very horrible, sad way.

13. Unfortunately, very appropriate material.
When that's how one's national leaders talk... silver lining in every mushroom cloud... (that one's apt too.)

falls for his bullshit.

17. Is this the same guy?
Maybe a misspelling of the name in this blog article... ?

20. I don't think it's his blog...
It's just a blog post on an article about him. Just came across it yesterday so I figured it might be the same guy.

19. I saw it last night
It was a great piece. The truth behind the humor is what has stayed with me. Reminded me a bit of Colbert's performance @ the WH corespondence dinner. The humor was brilliant because in the end it was only a medium to tell a dark, ugly truth.

:thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I hope he got enough laughs to stay around and make another appearance! "The Daily Show" seems to do their auditions during tapings of the show. It seems a fair amount of people make one or two appearances and then we never see them again.

32. I'm gonna chime in here and say:
That was one of the most "in your face" episodes that I have ever seen on TDS.

It pushed so many 'envelopes' and was by far, one of my favorites.

Ironically, the guy from "The Guinness Book" was somewhat drab, but Jon meshed through that interview nicely and quickly.
