So great to have a full week under our belt since the winter break. Stephen looked pleased and refreshed to be performing again.
So good to have you back, Mr. C! To start, it sounded like there was much silliness shared in the pre-show Q&A session. After a great though rare shot behind the desk, Mr. Colbert beamed at his audience in his usual appreciation of their appreciation and welcome us all to “Chit/Chat, where we girls just sit around and talk …”
It seems that yet again, the TCR predicted the news even before it happened. Mr. C bravely rushed in where most pundits fear to tread by making his stand, “Getting all sexual with a sectional … roadside sofa boning is wrong!”
Going from couch to armchair president, Mr. Colbert went on to patiently declare his well researched opinion regarding “Obama’s failed second term that hasn’t started yet.” He questions Mr. Obama’s personnel decisions by asking “Where the white women at?” in Obama’s second term cabinet.
Because of his lack of object permanence, “if you can’t see it, it does not exist” Mr. C sympathizes with all women concerned about their lack of representation in government as women are distracted by what could his hand be doing under his desk. But he does concede to all fanboys, he “loves white men, he sleeps with one every night.”
He also shouts out to his former presidential ticket top, the “formerly relevant Mike Huckabee.” Declaring”Huckabee and Huckameee,” he calls out his allegiance to all women with “it make you furious that we are delighted that you are angry!”
Unless you watched The Daily Show just before, you might not be even aware of Mr. Lew, recent Obama cabinet nominee, but Mr. C shows his audience just how racist they may be by showing a picture of an Asian, “Mr. Lew” before showing them the true Mr. Lew image and declares, “You racist!” *High Five* Mr. C!
But perhaps Mr. Lew is also confused as illustrated in his moniker and public signature which is as Mr. C so aptly describes, “a pubic hair masquerading as a signature.”
Now, all ColbertNation heroes are aware of Mr. C penchant for techie-devices and as he says, anything with a “stupid name, inflated price and incredibly narrow usefulness” he is all over it especially if he gets it for free. And with a Colbert Bump, we predict there will be a run on “the ultrasonic waterproof Harry Potter pepper mills.”
We were treated to a nice if brief Colbert Break when he dropped one of his “Hong Kong slippery chopsticks.” *Shakes fist at Hong Kong* for threatening our silverware!
Now all fans know about Mr. Colbert’s expertise with highly sophisticated product placement but he was highly impressed with the “Apple jack! snap!” by the b-ball banter when one player to another and he schools them all on how to do it with the Colbert-expertise!
And a rare but much appreciated lipsmack!
Guest Ben Gibbard … anyone else thought STC was a bit hostile with Ben?
Oh, heck, here is a vicarious shot of the handsome, Mr. Colbert, anyone object?
