Is Obama Losing Comedy Central?


Stephen Colbert: ‘Obama Is a Tyrannical Despot Who Ignores All the Rules’

On the day Barack Obama lost the New York Times, it appears he also lost Comedy Central’s Stephen Colbert.

On Thursday’s Colbert Report, the host actually said, “Obama is a tyrannical despot who ignores all the rules”


After some video clips of various news networks reporting some of the details, Colbert said, “Yes, the National Security Administration is spying on our phone calls, and unlike during the Bush administration, this time it’s the Obama administration. Yeah, this guy, he is always trying to outdo his predecessor. ‘Oh, he poured water on their face? I’m going to blow ’em up! HAHAHA! Did I win?’”

Following additional specifics on the mechanics of the surveillance, Colbert said, “Folks, I’m going to be straight with you. I’m conflicted here, folks. On the one hand, this proves Obama is a tyrannical despot who ignores all the rules. On the other hand, I kind of like tyrannical despots who ignore all the rules. Shows spunk.”

But it got better, because Colbert then read – as “a cherry on top of my conflict sundae” – some of the New York Times editorial claiming “The Obama administration has lost all credibility.”

Colbert immediately got on the phone and ordered home delivery of the Times. “My wife likes the Style section. I go straight for the Obama bashing.”

“I didn’t actually make a phone call just then,” he continued. “I just assumed the NSA is listening and will pass it on.”

Ever since 2008 Comedy Central has been the primary news source for the Obotian legions. It’s also been a safe place where nary a bad word gets said about Teh Precious. That’s finally changing.

Every flood starts with a few raindrops.

    I don’t really give a hoot if Comedy Central has been lost or found or fell off a cliff. Since they are driven by their own brainless form of lazy marketing driven hipster-ism that enabled our current predicament, the obvious hitting them in the head with a crowbar is not something to recommend them. I consider Colbert and Stewart to be what they are which is middle-aged men who pander to the young and/or clueless selling propaganda wrapped in condescension for a living. I am so very impressed that they were the next to last to figure things out. What geniuses.

    This is paranoia worthy of Alex Jones:

        Makes me sad that, having grown up in Pittsburgh, she uses the confluence of the Allegheny and Monongahela rivers on her blog…I certainly got a different mojo from there than she did!

        Is it just me or has she become pitiful. Lots of talking to herself.

          Because I don’t go to TC anymore unless linked from here, I have a slightly different take on her post. If everyone who has had time to think about the latest news coming out of the Guardian, etc, begins to rethink their positions, we could be looking at a revolution. Obama, could be the toast they should’ve been in 2007.
          or Has RD been against TehWon forever?

          Well, she probably has to, because a majority of her former friends who were smart enough to shun the Blue Kool-Aid, then turned around and drank the Red Kool-Aid, and she and a few others, including I, refused to join them, figuring Kool-Aid is Kool-Aid.

          Probably just got myself kicked out again… 😈

            We don’t drink anybody’s Koolaid around here. You need to learn to debate issues without attacking the players.

            When you stand on principle the tribal world moves around you.

        • Internal Exile says:

          Hmmm, seems each of us thinks he is independent-minded while the other is at least susceptible to tribal blandishments.

          Oh well, no such thing as a totally objective human being.

    The White House has become Comedy Central…they’re all there, The Three Stooges, The Keystone Cops, Amos ‘n Andy, The Little Rascals…

    Oh boy, part 2 ….

    He still draws pay, but his “workplace violence” victims draw nothing.

  5. A Comment from the LI link I find plausible. (Let me adjust my tin foil hat. There, that’s better)

    Perhaps I should apologize for conspiracy theorizing, but given the rate at which paranoid theories are becoming headlines, maybe no apology is needed for floating this idea.

    Now that we know the IRS was, from it upper levels, corruptly serving the political ends of the Obama administration by going after his political opponents, how do we know the NSA wasn’t doing the same thing? Records of the Romney campaign’s electronic communications would be very helpful to the Obama campaign, would they not? And didn’t the Romney campaign have a massive computer failure on election day? What a coincidence! Such a thing would probably be child’s play for the NSA….

      a quote from the SF gate linked in the article…

      “We want to remind the president of his eloquent promises to address global warming,” said CREDO Mobile President Michael Kieschnick. “He doesn’t like to be reminded of his promises.”

      Looks like the CREDO Mobile president will be the next IRS victim.
