Thanks for the cite. And I obviously have to start coming over here more often. Good stuff. Oyster has nudged me in this direction before and I need to make it a habit.

cheers

I thought Colbert was damn funny, but, yes, satire--and comedy generally--are not always "ha ha" funny. Take a look at "Network" and "Sunset Boulevard," two great dark comedies. Both had their "ha ha" moments, but mostly they were scathing satires. I laughed my ass off during the Oscars, as Jon Stewart slashed away at the Hollywood crowd. The less they laughed, the sharper he got. Same thing with Colbert.
