Yeah, but...

But he nailed it last night. The bit with Iran in camera 3 was hilarious and yet so true. It poked at the Obama administration as drawing war lines just like the rest of the GOP candidates would, and correctly called upon our man as being above all the rest in that regard. That should speak loudly to his democratic leaning audience. And I'm sure his staff was well aware of the Judge's preferred candidate of choice well before he was booked. He always closes his best segments about politics with a serious note, which drives the real underlying message home. Jon is fighting the good fight for us, while carefully walking that line so as not to alienate his audience (or perhaps his network masters, who thanksfully realize that his show would not be winning awards if his opinions were leashed).

Colbert does help too, but not nearly as much. He's more interested in talking over his guests to feed his own ego.

By claiming there is no conspiracy, you prove to those who believe in the conspiracy that you are part of the conspiracy.
