Overestimation of their own intelligence and underestimation of the intelligence and backbone of average Americans, here in America’s Heartland, is what cost Modern American Liberals the White House and a Congressional Majority.
You would think that they would be trying to suck up to average Americans, instead of didactically instructing us as to what we MUST believe.
Because when they do that, it always backfires.

Yesterday,Variety.com reported that
“Late Show” host Stephen Colbert is facing backlash for a joke he made about President Donald Trump on Monday night that many are calling “homophobic.”
During his opening monologue, Colbert went off on Trump over the President’s treatment of CBS News’ John Dickerson, who saw an interview with Trump abruptly ended when he asked about the President’s unproven claims that then-President Obama had wiretapped Trump and members of his campaign. As Dickerson and Colbert are both CBS employees, Colbert felt it his duty to say the things Dickerson himself could not.
“Sir, you attract more skinheads than free Rogaine,” Colbert said near the end of the insult-laden rant. “You have more people marching against you than cancer. You talk like a sign language gorilla that got hit in the head. In fact, the only thing your mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s c–k holster.” The final remark has drawn the internet’s ire, with viewers taking to social media to declare Colbert is homophobic.The hashtag #FireColbert began spreading around Twitter, along with calls for people to boycott sponsors of the late-night show.
CBS did not immediately respond to Variety’s request for comment.
Of course, this is not the first time Colbert has been the subject of a campaign to get him pulled off the air. Back in 2014 when he was hosting “The Colbert Report” on Comedy Central, that show’s official Twitter account posted a message saying, ““I am willing to show Asian community I care by introducing the Ching-Chong Ding-Dong Foundation for Sensitivity to Orientals or Whatever.” The tweet was meant to satirize Washington Redskins owner Daniel Snider, who started a charity to benefit Native Americans. Many perceived the tweet as a racist assault on Asians and Asian-Americans, leading to the creation of the hashtag #CancelColbert. Colbert reveled in the controversy, however, even promoting it on future episodes of “The Colbert Report.”
How avant garde. How sophisticated. How…boringly, hypocritically, and typically Liberal.
Late Night Talk Shows first appeared on the scene in 1954 with the arrival of The Tonight Show . They really became popular with the debut of a young Midwestern guy by the name of Johnny Carson, when he took over the hosting duties of the Tonight Show, in 1962.
Each host of the Tonight Show, before the current one, brought something unique and entertaining to the table. Steve Allen brought both comedy and musical ability. Jack Paar brought urbane sophistication. Johnny Carson brought masterful comedic timing and a Midwestern “Aw, shucks” feel to the show. Jay Leno, was the “Everyman”…the wisecracking guy next door, whom you could find on the weekend with his head stuck under a car hood. And, Conan O’Brien brought…err…umm…never mind.
Being the “old codger” that I am, I remember Johnny Carson very well. Johnny had a natural, easy-going Interview Style, which allowed him to talk to anyone on his show, from a 7 year old to Movie Stars.
And, while Carson skewered BOTH political parties in his monologues, he never brought up his political affiliation on the show. He felt that if he invited politicians on the show, that would turn off his viewers, as they tuned into his show at the end of a long, hard workday, to be entertained, NOT PROSELYTIZED TO.
That would come later, as the Programming Geniuses at NBC and CBS turned The Tonight Show With Jay Leno and the Late Show With David Letterman into Propaganda Machines for the Democrat Party, then went all out by handing over those two shows to Saturday Night Live Alumnus Jimmy Fallon and the before-mentioned Steven Colbert.
Letterman took his duty as the mouthpiece for the sophisticated, urbane Democrats up in the Northeast Corridor so seriously, he even attacked Former Republican Vice-Presidential Candidates Sarah Palin’s children in a monologue, which he later was forced to reluctantly apologize for, due to the blistering blowback which CBS received from average Americans in the Heartland, burning up the phone lines in protest.
Letterman eventually became a national joke on his own, through his indiscretion involving a female staff member.
This yearning by Colbert and the rest of the Liberals at CBS in New York City to seduce the “Young Politically-Hip Liberals” into watching their show, by basically turning a late Night Talk Show into a Political Interview/Satiric Commentary Program, will ultimately be this latest version of the Late Show’s downfall.
If people want to watch someone suck up to the Democratic Party, they can tune in to the Nightly News on the three Broadcast Channels, CNN, or, if they are really desperate, MSNBC.
And, if they want to hear Homophobic vulgarities being hurled as insults, go hang around a outdoor basketball court.
Today’s Late Night Talk Shows, including Colbert’s are programming for a very select audience.
American Liberals only make up 24% of our population.
Some of them, actually work for a living and have to get up the next morning.
Others are quite content to remain Low Information Voters, by selectively getting their political “news” and “information” from clowns like Steven Colbert.
Growing up, I was always told that you could measure a man’s intellect by his vocabulary.
That being the case, then I would say that Steven Colbert’s matches that of a Mississippi River Clam.
Until He Comes,
