Is Stephen Colbert the Mark Twain of this age...

I am sure he writes a good chunk of his stuff simply because of the Persona he carefully built on the Daily Show...

Of course he has a great team of writers behind him and Twain did all of his writing. But if you compare the total amount Twain created over his years as an Entertainer with Colbert's 13 or so years of creating at least 100 daily shows each year, well, you would have to say Colbert is at the very least in Twain's league.

So, I think it is safe to say that Colbert, and not to forget Jon Stewart, are both a national treasure and make the madness coming out from our political, media and business leaders a little less bitter by giving us the chance to laugh. Otherwise, so we could easily go crazy.
