Stewart was very funny until he started to take himself seriously. Colbert like the Larry the Cable Guy is just grating on the nerves. My opinion like yours is worth no more than anyone else's. Geniuses, no they did not even make it into the league of the early SNL cast for me.

It also says something about those in the press who agree. Farhi winked in his story that this obsession is a problem, but then unfurled a long list of academic...
