I call bullshit...

Here's a family dilemma: what do you do when your mother (R-Cascadia) mentions that she really likes the Colbert Report, and you suspect she doesn't get the joke?

APL: the difference between The Daily Show and The Colbert Report is simple. Jon Stewart is anti-bullshit. Stephen Colbert is pro-bullshit. Fortunately, as satire, it pretty much has the same effect.

Quinn: you fail to appreciate that Stephen Colbert can be enjoyed on more than one level. Republicans who watch the show may not get that he's playing a character, but they can still get a kick out of how he exposes their follies.

I'd start to worry if your mother says she doesn't like the show because he's making Republicans look bad. Or if she starts adopting The Word the next day.
