they went all out on the tags of the huffpo entry.

"Colbert Calls Palin Retarded, Colbert Palin, Colbert Palin Retard, Colbert Retard, Colbert Sarah Palin Retard,..."

It needs the best coverage possible. It's hilarious!

I haven't watched The Colbert Report for awhile, so another surprise for me in this clip was that he was so openly scornful of her. His 'character' used to be a bit more subtle, subversive -- in this clip, he was just burning her. Do you know if he's changed his approach, or was this an exception?

I don't watch a lot of TV. But I think it's anything for a good joke, especially when it comes to the hypocrisy of political figures. Was hilarious.

I watch nearly every show. I think he's been expressing a lot of variance in his character over the past ... few months, maybe? It's hard to pinpoint the start of a trend when you haven't been looking for it. So sometimes he's more satire-y, other times more straightforward, than he was when the show was newer. Or, perhaps more accurately, than before Obama took office and the American federal right wing got severely obstructionist.
