WaPost media blogger Eric Wemple is no rightwing conservative, but even he has seen enough of the supposed genius faux comedian Colbert's political double standards, after a 'surprise' Hillary appearance on Colbert's show.
"Clinton and Colbert engaged in a name-dropping contest, the annoying transcript of which the Erik Wemple Blog will spare readers. They also ran through a make-believe “hard choice” scenario that Colbert posed to his guest; again, we’ll leave out the specifics. The segment ended with Colbert promoting Clinton’s book: “Buy ‘Hard Choices’ — available in bookstores everywhere there are still bookstores.”
"Colbert runs a comedy show, so he carries no obligation to press Clinton with probing questions as he raises her stature with the precious audience of “The Colbert Report.” Yet the cheap jokes and the host’s fawning approach toward Clinton teamed up for an embarrassing display."
Predictable response: How dare a paid media critic criticize the 'genius' comedian, doesnt he have a sense of humor?
Predictable response: "Colbert hits both sides" (right, though one side gets hit with a sledgehammer, his own side gets tickled with a feather)....
