Stephen Colbert lashes out at America


Is it too late to change our votes?

America, you have done it now. After everything Stephen Colbert has done for you, you go and pull a stunt like this? For shame.

The host of Comedy Central's The Colbert Report let the audience have it Wednesday night, following the re-election of President Barack Obama. After berating America Tuesday night, Colbert struggled to pull himself together and move past this action.

Colbert opened his program with his head down on his desk, wearing a red robe, a backwards baseball cap and gorging on white cheddar popcorn. 

"What are you people doing here? Shouldn't you be out celebrating?" he asked the studio audience. "Because evidently you don't listen to anything I say! I've been bringing you the truth, hot and hard now for seven years, and how do you repay me? Four more years of hope and change! What do you think, I do this night after night for your amusement? I do it for America!" 

He then turned on his TV, kicked up his feet and flipped off America.

It was pretty selfish of us to do this, America. Didn't anyone think what Colbert would think? Or were we all too drunk on hope and change that we didn't care.

Never mind, Stephen, how often has it been that genius wasn't discovered until long after a person's death? To cheer you up I'm sending you a new game to play. It's something like monopoly, with oil wells instead of hotels, and when you roll the dice you get to occupy, I mean land on, countries instead of addresses. There's also a lot more 'get out of jail free' cards, only you have to guess which country you've been sent to, and survive the enhanced interrogation sessions - sorry, I mean participate in a rigorous quiz show. I haven't seen those 'get out of jail free' cards you'll be needing, but hey, it's a work in progress, for now we'll just make up the rules as we go along.By 'we' I don't mean you, of course. Hec Stephen, everybody has to pay, but don't you worry. It'll be a scream!
