Did You Know?

Trivia:
In March of 2011, hundreds of cities across the United States stopped publishing the residential "White Pages", as most of the information in the White Pages can be found online. Colbert honored the parting of the White Pages on the show by placing a copy of the White Pages on his bookshelf, located on the show's set.See more »
Quotes:
Stephen Colbert:[discussing the potential ports deal with Dubai] I hesitate to say this, but while Bush may, in fact, be right, it feels like Bush... is wrong. Ooh!
[holds his gut]
Stephen Colbert:Oh, that hurts my gut! Oh, cause my gut tells me George Bush is always right! Oh God!
[holds his head]
Stephen Colbert:That hurts my brain, cause this is so clearly not the right gut political decision for him to have made! Ooh, there's my gut again! Bush is right... aggh, he's wrong... gahh, he's right... noo! Agh, he can't be both wrong and right at the same time!

Colbert Report, 10 March 2006
Author: Nora-65 from United States

Funny to the bone. I adore the show, Steven is so appealing. My husband and I plan our evening around the Report. I cant take the news any more, it's so depressing, frustrating and totally black (the "regular" news creates bias just through how they word things - it's just inherent in language). However, both the Colbert Report and Daily show inform me while satirizing. It's a winning combination. I think Steven Colbert is brilliant. He is one of the writers for the show and all the writers seem super imaginative and right on target. His delivery is usually mesmerizing. I think this show appeals to a wide age range. I'm in my late 50s and I think there may be a younger demographic in general for Colbert. Maybe it's more of an attitude that we have in common. The show is like O'Reilly on luminescently clear hallucinogens. Steven maintains a double approach: faking a right punch, but actually hits with the left. He has appeal to clear-thinking logical folks who also love to laugh. How else can we get through this madness except with comedy?
