Maybe the reason Colbert doesn't have more women on his show is because, like most male republicans, he doesn't know how to speak to half the species. ;)

I heard back about my VIP tickets I won at trivia & I'm going to the show Feb 5. Keep your fingers crossed for a good guest that night.

He's got some tough competition!

I would have guessed Rick Santorum would have been described as Tata Asshola.

 

Hey Jon Stossel, Scrooge called. He said to stop acting like the heartless, tacky bastard you are. And Bill O'Reilly, the Pope called. He said for you to stop giving Jesuits like him a bad name, asshole.

I was just coming here to say that.

 

It gets harder and harder for me to laugh at the jokes TCR and TDS make at Fox expense because the targets are just such hateful monsters.

He seemed to mostly be promoting the Hobbit movies and New Zealand tourism.

The Letterman spot was really weird and uncomfortably awkward to watch. Then again, Letterman is always like that with guests that are funnier than he is, which is essentially everyone.

Why is it so weird to see someone you normally only hear on the radio? The voice coming out of their mouth is so familiar, but the face is not; I guess that's the disconcerting part. I'm used to Ira Glass & Brian Lehrer now, but last night's guest remained a weird experience to the end.

Shut the fuck Gretchen Calson. Your fake outrage over Christmas not being to your liking is insufferable and definetly not very Christian of you.

 

Stephen's Obamacare Christmas carols were hilariously awful. Which is more than what can be said of Mike Huckabee"s mserable attempt at parody.

I don't know what was funnier, the Christmas carol parodies or Stephen's sign interpreter. I think the latter was my favorite.

 

I couldn't help guffawing out loud when Stephen did the Seinfeld bit, "Hellllo, Judas."

 

I'd never seen Elizabeth Gilbert interviewed. How delightful. I might see if her TED talk is online.

Good thing we Canadians don't use pennys anymore. We'd have no use for Stephen's jar.

 

I'd like to try Ambien. The side effects sound like quite a buzz.

 

First Jon, now Stephen. If Megyn Kelly has an ounce of shame in her, she'd realize by now that what came out of her mouth last night was unbelievably stupid.

In the Cheating Death sleeping graphic, what were the skeleton sheep baa'ing as they leapt over the skull?

 

Always love Cheating Death. I'd heard about some of the side effects of Ambien, but geez, those are crazy! I love Stephen's suggestion of the warning "May cause sudden onset Kafka." And of course Prescott's various side effects were great: Sleep waltzing, night terriers, nocturnal munitions, creamed corneas, stubble vision. Was the last one 'interest elbow'?

Meh. The musical guests seldom interest me. On the bright side, I can use the extra time in the morning to scrape off the car.

I'm particularly excited to see friend of the show Alan Cumming return, since his last musical performance ("Oops-A-Daisy Homophobe") was such a memorable one. Can't wait to see what he, Stephen and Cyndi will do.

I saw The Hobbit yesterday and Stephen is very easy to spot.  And, he and Evelyn and his sons are in the closing credits.  I didn't have as much luck in figuring out who the rest of the Colberts were in Laketown.

Saw the Six By Sondheim documentary on HBO and was terribly disappointed Stephen singing his version of Send in the Clowns wasn't included. :) But seriously, it's a wonderful 90 minutes. See it if you can.
