There is a Jewish expression that" too smart is too stupid. " Colbert just proved it.

Clever Political Humorist
S. Colbert can make us/me laugh about almost anything. We need him in this climate of stress, fear and hate.

It's good to have a laugh. I like the Corbert Report, it helps to not always take the News so seriously. To laugh about our differences instead of hating. I'm OK and your OK and let's have some fun with it. To laugh at ourselves and to laugh WITH others about themselves. Done in a spirit of Love not Hate. The bloopers that wasn't a written script. People just being their imperfect selves. Mistakes happen: be Glad not Mad. We were just given an opportunity to laugh! That must come from Steven's 75% Jewish side of him. His 25% side, well nobody is perfect, we won't hold it against him.

You just got to like him
Colbert is just funny. Unlike a lot of political comedians, Steven makes friends (and fun of) with everyone from the military to the Jewish ppl.
