Best of the Week: The Colbert Report on Limbaugh, Romney, and more…

MONDAY (March 5, 2012)
After all the commentary on Rush Limbaugh’s misogynistic attacks on law student Sandra Fluke, Colbert came up with an insight often missing from the conversation…
I don’t understand why this man has gone through four wives.
I don’t think that Rush should have apologized for calling her a prostitute. I mean, it takes one to know one. And remember, he only apologized to keep his advertisers, proving Rush will do anything with his mouth for cash.

Colbert has more actual principles than most of the media outside of Glenn Greenwald, and they were on fully display as he used “The Word” to take a look at the Obama Administrations use of drone strikes to kill American citizens.
Now, Holder has gotten a lot of criticism for the legal justification he gave for killing an American citizen — none.
“Due process” does not mean “judicial process.” The founders weren’t picky. (Slaves Did The Picky.) I mean, trial by jury, trial by fire, rock-paper-scissors, who cares? Due process just means there is a process that you do. (Remotely From Tampa.) Folks, from what I can understand, the current process is apparently, first the President meets with his advisers and decides who he can kill. Then, he kills them. (Ordering Takeout.) You see, the President has had these powers ever since Congress passed the Authorization For the Use of Force Bill after long and careful consideration, three days after 9/11.
You know, Colbert is being a true patriot when he inserts tongue in cheek and says the following. It’s satirific.
If we’re going to win our never-ending war against terror, there are bound to be casualties, and one of them just has to be the Constitution.

Colbert’s ongoing segment “Countdown to Inevitability” speaks much truth about how many conservatives feel about Mitt Romney.
Jim, bring up the Countdown to Loving Mitt Clock. Oh no. Two minutes, forty-five seconds, really? Aren’t I supposed to get a last meal first? I’m scared.

Have you seen Herman Cain’s startling anti-stimulus, pro-goldfish torture ad?
Colbert gives Cain mad respect.
Cain is pushing the boundaries of what can be called a political ad, just as he once pushed the boundaries of what can be called pizza.
