colbert on hillary

"in my heart i've got this vague sense that she would turn the government into some sort of, you know, lesbian witch coven that would kidnap men and steal their semen and inseminate each other with turkey basters in order to raise an army of demon babies."

from last night's show with deborah tannen

Call me a prude, I find that too offensive to be funny and not really clever: you take the most elemental anti-feminist cliche (lesbian man-haters) and apply it to HRC -- now that's gold! Seriously, imagine that joke on, say, Bill Richardson "I can't shake this feeling he would steal all our hubcaps and invite 1,000 of his distant relatives to cross the border." I won't even speculate to an analagous joke on Obama. But again, I'm an admitted prude (but one who respects the first amendment)!

In any event, Obama supporters should realize this is counterproductive: Hillary does best when she's attacked by men. If they didn't learn that by studying the race with Rick Lazio, the New Hampshire primary should have taught them for sure.
You'd think Obama supporters would have learned, if not from Rudy Guliani and Rick Lazio, then from the New Hampshire primaries: the more you spew that kind of anti-woman venom (powerful woman = lesbian man hater), the more it drives voters away.

You mean "Copy and Paste" is different than "Cut and Paste"?!

but you have to remember he's playing a character. the fact that he doesn't mean it, and the fact that it's so tremendously ridiculous, is what makes it funny to me. he's a master of mocking the most seriously ridiculous right wing pundits.

he could have done a riff on obama or richardson and i still would have appreciated the joke.
