If there is genius to Colbert, it's discovering that people will laff hugely at weak material if it lights up their political-hate circuits.— Kyle Smith (@rkylesmith) December 19, 2014
Really -- how people find Colbert funny is beyond me. Even if I was liberal I wouldn't let out a chuckle.

MSNBC useful idiot Howard Fineman on how to counter Russia's Putin:
#AcademyAwards show diversity, tolerance, cultural creativity of US in Obama Era. Hard power matters, per Putin, but Oscars r as powerful.— Howard Fineman (@howardfineman) March 3, 2014
This was so f***ing stupid, even Fineman's wife called him out for it.
Admin officials tell CNN's Barbara Starr this is an "uncontested arrival" not necessarily "an invasion" and that this distinction is "key."— Stephen Hayes (@stephenfhayes) February 28, 2014
As Douglas Ernst says, "President Euphemism: Obama ‘concerned’ Russia’s ‘uncontested arrival’ to incite ‘man-caused disaster.’
The only way to get journalists to recognize the oppression of Russia and the former USSR? Put them in the "middle" of it:
Kill 20 million of their own citizens? The Russians are misunderstood! Not have toilet paper for American journos? Russians are monsters!— Leon Wolf (@LeonHWolf) February 5, 2014

Obama's ending on Remsburg wasn't just a story about America -- it also was a story about Obama. Nothing has ever come easy— Mark Murray (@mmurraypolitics) January 29, 2014
Murray is NBC's political director. Remsburg is the ten-times deployed soldier who Boss Obama highlighted near the end of his State of the Union address the other night.
Check it: Murray is actually comparing Remsburg's struggles -- he was left for dead in a ditch in Afghanistan and has had numerous operations to give him back some semblance of a normal life -- to Obama's. HE IS COMPARING REMSBURG'S STRUGGLES ... TO OBAMA'S. The political director of NBC News, folks.
God help us all.
It's a local one, too:

Please do not use the #progun word "BANGS" if referring to FLOTUS hair. This violence inciting word will be replaced w/"forehead flare"
When I showed skepticism about Hillary Clinton's health, I was relying on the best intelligence available at the time.
The best way to neuter the individual is to remove responsibility from the equation. Now responsibility is actively discouraged.
"Didn’t FDR insist for two weeks that Pearl Harbor was a spontaneous response to an Abbott and Costello routine?"
Only lazy thinkers make the moral equation between the Palestinians and Israel. It's like equating the Nazis and the West.
If you're still wondering why Obama won reelection, the media questions so far should help you figure that out.
Girls, get your abortions NOW in case the Republicans win
"Oh, you get laid last night? Sure, thanks to government roads. You're WELCOME." - Barack Obama
Obama to child building sandcastle: "you didn't build that." Child: "huh?"
Breaking: Obama sues Starship over 80s hit "We Built This City," insists title be changed to "Big Gov't Built This City."
If Romney released more returns, Obama would lie about what was in there and then demand MORE information and it would start all over.
McConnell: "The Supreme Court has spoken. This law is a tax. The bill was sold to the American people on a deception"
Liberalism: a mom can determine when to kill her unborn child, but she is not capable of knowing how much soda the live one should have.
Karen Tumulty lives under a rock:
Don't understand how the birther thing persists. Obama's mother never set foot in Africa. Did they find him under a cabbage leaf?
No, ma'am. Obama just employs literary agents who are willing to make his background appear "more exotic." (Tumulty worked for Time before joining the WaPo. Little surprise, then, why she's so clueless.)
Most implausible thing about James Bond movies: government workers inventing ingenious devices.
PREDICTION: If Sotomayor Votes Against ObamaCare, Libs Will Re-Classify Her Race ‘White Hispanic’.
Left tries to get Rush "Fired" and his ratings go up. Conservatives ignore Olbermann and he gets himself fired all by himself.
Hey, remember when Rush tweeted the address of Sandra Fluke and her parents?
Remember, the same people looking to lynch Zimmerman right now were all upset that KSM was waterboarded. FYI.
I sure hope it's the same courtroom in which O. J Simpson was found not guilty. Only & Last time Blacks had justice. (Link)
So it sounds like Obama's "accommodation" is like Darth Vader's alteration of his deal with Lando.
Christine O'Donnell shows off her prodigious intellect:
Although we support different candidates, Victoria & I agree Obama's got to go!
How about that! COD, a Republican, wants Obama out!
Via PolarCoug: "We will Barry you." - Nikita Khrushchev
How big a poll bump would Romney get if he beat an Occupy Protester senseless?
POTUS says Christmas is only about giving of ourselves. That must be his reason for the $4M vacay - taxpayers are giving of ourselves.
Only in America would people violently trample each other for discounts, exactly one day after being thankful for what they already have...
The strongest indicator that a civilization has reached the point of no return is the disappearance of public shame.
... comes from Delaware's own Christine "I Can't Spell" O'Donnell:
Heard about Obama's latest scapegoat? He's blaming our economic whoas on China. Their response: a hearty chuckle!
My response: A hearty chuckle as well!
One of Obama's great gifts is the ability to say things that are absolutely absurd and make them sound not only plausible, but inspiring.
"Give me liberty or give me death." - Patrick Henry "I don't want to work, I just want to bang on the drum all day." - Occupy Wall Street
Majority of Americans Say Government Is "Almost Always Wasteful and Inefficient"
Precisely why spending cuts should come WAAAAY before any tax increases.
Tea Party was branded racist 4 imaginary actions of few, why isn't the Occupy movement called antisemitic & anti-American 4 actions of many?
Steve Jobs was born out of wedlock, put up for adoption at birth, dropped out of college, then changed the world. What's your excuse?
Yeah, hear that 'o Wall Street Occupiers?

Reason-Rupe poll: Only 27% of Americans believe Congress would use money from tax increases to pay down national debt.
The 73% of Americans who don't believe it have damn good cause, too: Congress never does it!
Does Biden drink? Who would know the difference?
The tea party was not sent to washington to negotiate with you mr president. They were sent because your policies suck.
You've got to fit in centuries of dispossession, unfounded myth and a Holocaust before you compare anti-Islam sentiment with anti-Semitism.

It is time to "share in the sacrifice," declares the president who claimed itemized deductions of $78,269 last year. (Link.)
Henceforth, if a liberal complains about a conservative's "troubling past," ask them if they've appeared on Sharpton's show.
Yep, you got that right -- 'ol Al has got a new MSNBC gig.
The province of Alberta added more jobs in June than the entire U.S.
VDH (Victor Davis Hanson) lists 3 themes of Obama campaign: Bush did it, GOP wants to throw Granny over the cliff, BHO opponents are either illiberal or racist.
Maybe Tom Petty will let Obama use a song to celebrate his polls: "Free Fallin'."
