The Marching Morons and other hilarities.

Stranger in a Strange Land - A Slightly Twisted View of American Politics and Society: "Too freaking funny.
Apparently Tom DeLay is under the DeLusion that Stephen Colbert is an actual conservative who actively supports him and his cronies. The moronity that American voters manage to elect into office never ceases to amaze."

Strangerina is pointing to an hilarious Think Progress article where they reveal that is citing STEVEN COLBERT as a staunch defender.

The comments are priceless.

  1. Say what you want about Colbert, he’s a LOT more popular than DeLay, with liberals, conservatives and all other reality based organic lifeforms.

  2. Reminds me of when Christianists were quoting an Onion article in order to prove that Harry Potter was demonic and was corrupting children left & right….(no pun intended)

    I totally missed that one. How hilarious! Apparently the news that is was a spoof didn’t make it to some desperate housewife in my school district who has never read any of the books, but says they will influence children to practice witchcraft and is trying to get them pulled from the school libraries. Even here in the rural and red South she is considered a crackpot with most people.

  3. By the way I tried to email the person under contacts for the delay defense fund and got a permanent dead link. Apparently they really don’t want any feed back. Go figure

  4. Colbert savages the Republican right with the weapon that the Democrats are afraid to use….. because it is a two edged sword…. bold truthfulness.

    The country is longing for a government that is not unintentionally ironic.

  5. Watching “The Colbert Report” just got even funnier knowing that many 29%’ers believe he’s conservative no matter what they have heard or seen………and they say the hardest substance in the world is diamond? I think not.

  6. Here’s what I think we oughta do…

    I agree with the idea that it doesn’t really matter if Colbert is being sarcastic/ironic…I mean, we know he is, but the Neocons will hear what they want to hear…they see him as the Conservative response to the Daily Show….

    Having said that, it is a good ole time watching Cons making asses of themselves…so I say we let ‘em twist for a while….hopefully the Conservative groups will continue to reference Colbert…

    Then we let them in on the joke in the late summer, just before elections…we can point and laugh…and perhaps in the process get some of ‘em to question the other crap this administration has been spoon feeding them…we could even bring in that if the conservatives morons had gotten a proper Non-Republican education, they’d have been able to identify “satire.”

    Good Lord, what dufuses…or is it dufi? I can never remember…

And meanwhile, the Right is seriously confused. Even fairly sensible people on the Right seem to be confused.

Is Stephen Colbert a Liberal or a Conservative?
Posted by Gordon Smith

During breaks in the graduation ceremony today, I chatted with Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin about all sorts of things. It turns out that she's a fan of Stephen Colbert, too. She asked whether I thought he was, at heart, a liberal or conservative. (Apparently, this is a matter of dispute among members of Congress.) I told her that I assumed he was a liberal, but she said that the congressman who claims to know Colbert best is convinced that he is a conservative.

Hmm. Interesting.

Irony. It's a terrible, terrible weapon to use on the unsuspecting. It is the WMD of comedy. It's horribly, hidiously unfair. When properly employed, the victims of the deadpan humorist are like baby ducks being led into a blender.

That's what makes it so much fun!

In other news, early hints of a private-enterprise funded Venus colony are being circulated. George Soros mentioned as possible large contributor to R&D efforts for Venutian habitats.
