The bloglitical situation; Colbert is indeed funny

Michael Bérubé and Adam Kotsko and Stephen Colbert: how smart and funny go together.

Update: Despite the very best efforts of commenting blogdrones....as Markos says it best,"Colbert is now the number one album on iTunes [right next to Kos himself, I may add]. But remember, he wasn't funny."


Elsewhere, Blah-feme is really very good (for those who didn't know already). And I hope she or he continues. That is all.

oh, alright (!) already, I'll admit it. The above text is meant to serve as "bait" for the dear Reader's curiosity. Yes, I would like people to visit my blog. And why not?! The average visitor is bound to find one or two startling insights. What's more, it's a good bet that more than a few visitors will discover that I evoke with the written word thought, hitherto more, well, tantalizing than articulated.

. . . oh, yeah, I should add that the full title for that post is "rehabilitation of and by and for the right wing" . . . by the bye, depending on visitor's essentiality, one might be either heartened or dismayed by one, or two, of my easter eggs.
