I saw it and I hated it. Can anyone deny that she is right about doing things for your own self interest? He compared Ron Paul and Clarence Thomas and compared both of them to Scrooge McDuck.

This guy's an establishment shill like that asshole Stewart. It sickens me to see supporters around here lavish praise to them and Rachel Maddow

Stephen Colbert is a television character. He has been acting like that since "The Guru." A lot of people don't know that. He rarely breaks character.. even in television interviews, Congressional hearings etc. He has become "Stephen Colbert." That being said, he (the person) actually supports Ron Paul. Though he rarely breaks character to say it.

What I thought originally but Stephen Colbert is supposed to be a character who acts like a Bill O'Reilly type conservative but instead he gave a liberal's critique of Ron Paul and Ayn Rand. He broke character. Either that or his writing staff is a bunch of Dems and he just thought it was funny so they kept it.

This is what baffles people about Colbert. Everything he does is satire. I don't know if he supports Ron Paul, but when he acts like a big neocon knuckledragger it is always in mockery. I've literally only seen him break character once; looks like he had to think for a second whether he really wanted to or not...

Lighten up. Have some humor. Not everyone has to agree with Paul, especially not satire characters. What matters is Colbert himself is anti-war. Maybe he doesn't have the time to educate himself on libertarian ideology, but attacking him just because he hates Paul is kind of silly.

What I gotta complain about the Paul Campaign is we aren't making ENOUGH an effort to win over the liberals, because they certainly embody Paul's message more than neo-cons...

He didn't piss me off. The priest he had on did.

Yeah, its against Jesus to cut government spending for the poor. Why do we need the middle man? Oh, that's right, because bleeding hearts don't want to voluntarily donate their time and money.

Saw that too. He basically dedicated half of his show to talking points FOR entitlement programs and how you're greedy if you don't want your money being used to fund them. I don't buy satire on this one. If it was satire he would have been using typical neo-con talking points to make himself seem stupid like usual in his show where he acts like Bill O'Reilly on steroids.

I've seen him get on his soapbox to badmouth Rand a couple years back too. He doesn't do his schtick as much as he used to
