Colbert On Cunningham-McCain Flap
Did you see Stephen Colbert's brilliant take on the Bill Cunningham-John McCain flap on "The Colbert Report" last night?
You can see it online at our politics blog
Or the Colbert site
Colbert's writers did a great job making fun of Cunningham, McCain's response and talk radio. My favorite line: "I've always hated him (McCain) going back to when Rush Limbaugh told me to hate him."
But curiously, the online bit ends abruptly, cutting off Colbert's final joke. Colbert concluded the piece by complaining about McCain: "He back-stabbed a man for noting that Barack Obama is probably a terrorist." Censorship? How about some truthiness here?
Will that line be seen when "The Colbert Report" repeats at 8:30 p.m. tonight?
10:30 p.m. Update/Correction: Just finished watching tape of the entire show. The Colbert back-stabbing joke appeared later in the half-hour, during "Threat Down," not as part of the Cincinnati report at the top of the show. Glad to see it! What a great show last night. Truthiness prevails!
