Stephen Colbert gets truthy with Congress; rightbloggers scream like stuck eagles (and so do MSM reporters)
Long, bitter experience — and long, bitter comments at this blog
— have taught us that if there’s anything conservatives hate more than
Big Gummint and homosexuals, it’s someone making fun of them. The
outrage that Boss Tweed expressed over “them damned pictures“
of himself drawn by Thomas Nast is as nothing compared to that of your
typical right-winger who suspects he, or his idol, has been mocked.
So the moment it was announced that TV satirist Stephen Colbert would be testifying before Congress
on behalf of a migrant farm workers’ rights bill, rightbloggers soared
to the highest of dudgeons. How dare this comedian sully the seriousness
In this cause, rightbloggers received some extra help from big-time
media outlets who may have their own reasons for wanting Colbert and
people like him out of the picture.
