Had to do a double take when Colbert collided with Limbaugh.
At least Colbert honestly creates satire.
Limbaugh creates ... well, ratings and money, yes. But satire appears often by nature of the double-sided blade of "truthiness" he flails around with in his ever-diminishing effort to entertain his true believers.
First, take a look at Limbaugh's attempt to get away from the Republican defeat on Tuesday:
"The way I feel is this: I feel liberated, and I'm going to tell you as plainly as I can why. I no longer am going to have to carry the water for people who I don't think deserve having their water carried. Now, you might say, "Well, why have you been doing it?" Because the stakes are high! Even though the Republican Party let us down, to me they represent a far better future for my beliefs and therefore the country's than the Democrat [sic] Party does and liberalism."
Now, comedian Stephen Colbert:
"Tomorrow you're all going to wake up in a Brave New World, a world where the constitution gets trampled by an army of terrorist clones created in a stem cell research lab run by homosexual doctors who sterilize their instruments over burning American flags. Where Tax and Spend Democrats take all your hard-earned money and use it to buy electric cars for National Public Radio and teach evolution to illegal immigrants. Oh, and everybody's high!!! Whoo!!! I've had it! You people don't deserve a Republican majority. Screw this, I quit!"

For sheer lunacy, however, nobody can touch the witless drooling of Bill O'Reilly.
