Colbert was acting stupid, but OReally thought him wise

Colbert routinely acts in such a way to draw out of his interviewees the kind of response he hopes will allow them to speak freely and passionately as Judge Napolitano did here.

When he mistakenly called Colbert, Bill, instead of Stephen, at the end of his corrective rant, Colbert correctly took it as a compliment that his clown act was close enough to OReallys' that it caused the slip.

What was sad was that the Bullmeister was either too proud, or stupid, (or both), to acknowledge that the compliment Colbert took by it was for him successfully playing the fool that OReally actually is.

Indeed!
