Stephen Colbert is leaving Comedy Central for CBS. Ever since the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, where Colbert was the first person to really criticize GW Bush, and did it while looking at him, he has been my hero.
Colbert had the courage to call Bush a fool, a jester; he was so tough on him, that I was actually a bit sick watching him eviscerate Bush. But it had to be done, finally, after all the lies and fear Bush/Cheney created, and all the anti-American labels they would put on any opposition. I truly think Colbert helped many Americans get their brains thinking again, including this one.
