I have a dream! No wait, a crush

Ok, so I’m a little apprehensive to admit this, but I know Dinah has my back. I have a crush on Stephen Colbert. Don’t get ahead of me, its mostly on his insane volumes of (usually) quality sarcasm/satire, but for an old married guy he looks pretty great too.

It all started when I began watching the Daily Show (pre Colbert Report) and I would wait for the episodes when that dashing correspondent would blow some White House contradiction wide open. Either that or present “Today in God” (boo beep beep boo beep beep boo) or a painfully hilarious interview with some unsuspecting schlub from Ohio.

“We have no desire to make anybody look like a blithering idiot, but we do love it when they do.”- Stephen Colbert

Without Stephen Colbert we would be oblivious to the dangers of bears in all forms and we would never get to better know many of the 219 (239?) districts in the States. The faux Republican thing is a little hard to follow at times, you just have to assume everything he says in insincere. He also talks down Canadians in favour of blind American arrogance and world domination, but just refer the above sincerity comment.

Its not actually complicated. He’s one of those people that you always have to say the first and last name and from imdb I found out that he’s deaf in one ear and came from a family of a crapload of children. His ties aren’t always bang on and he adjust his glasses obsessively but there’s something about those beady eyes.
I have a crush.

Courtesy of my brother’s blog:
"Jon, the vast majority of bloggers out there are responsible correspondents doing fine work in niche reporting fields like Gilmore Girl fan fiction, or cute things their cats do, or photoshopped images of the Gilmore Girls as cats. That's great. Where I draw the line is with these attack-bloggers. Just someone with a computer who gathers, collates and publishes accurate information that is then read by the general public. They have no credibility. All they have is facts. Spare me." –S Colbert

I know there's a copy of this sketch on YouTube. I love that quote - I need to find a way to incorporate it into my web site.

Oh man, I was just thinking about Stephen Colbert the other day, and it made me giddy to just think of him. Hee, the Gilmore Girls as cats.

Dinah said...

hahaha, Li'l Brudder.

Jon said...

I don't know... that Jon Stewart is quite handsome.

Here's a link to the original clip (*note: this one gets a little off-colour).

Oh, and just in case all you out there have been under a rock lately, watch the WhiteHouse Correspondants Dinner Speech to see "Ted" at his best.

I have some serious love for both of them - but I just didn't see all of Colbert's glory until I knew him for a big D&D nerd.

I wonder if he'd ever just wear a cloak on the show. No explanation - just do the entire show wearing a cloak one day. And maybe some kind of staff w/ a big crystal on it.

I'm getting too hot and bothered to continue.
