Emily Post 101


I'm not as big a fan of Colbert as I am of Jon Stewart, but this is just GREAT! And I think I may become a bigger fan...

Stewart is more of a pro on his own show than Colbert is on his, but Colbert did do that hilarious stunt at the White House dinner. (On the other hand, I also loved when Stewart went on Crossfire and told off the hosts.)

The problem with Colbert is that he's basically a one-joke comedian. It's a great joke, but it limits what he can do. Because he always must stay in character, he can never attack conservatives the old-fashioned way. Damning people with faint praise can only go so far.

True, and it's why I'm more likely to watch The Daily Show than Colbert and why I haven't been THAT interested in Colbert. I just happened to click on the site today. Funny thing is, the rest of the show wasn't that great. Oh, well. As you said, the one joke can only go so far, but every once in a while, he hits it out of the park.
