Colbert Absorbs Keith Olbermann’s Power, Then Mocks Him

Check out the HuffPost report plus video here, or, if you have access, check out the video on the official website of the Colbert Report.

This is comedy gold! It promptly reminds me of Jon Stewart’s numerous mockings of Glenn Beck. It shows the abilities of these two comics’ (and media commentato­rs) to exemplify the main point that was made at the Rally to Restore Sanity.

The sort of over the top and over-drama­tic rhetoric spewed by Olbermann and Beck (I hate to equate the two because it’s not fair, but I guess I could do it within the context of both them being mocked by Stewart and Colbert) constantly filling television screens really exacerbate­s the partisan (and now, violent) political climate we have.
