It's always a marvel to watch this guy go in on somebody. As much as I love Stewart, Colbert is an act for the ages. He is channeling all of our simmering left-wing anger and refracting it through the mask. From a black perspective, it is very familiar--but I need to re-read Ralph Ellison and Albert Murray to tell you specifically why. 

A few years back, he sliced up D'Nesh Dsouza so bad, that I don't think he knew he was bleeding until a week later. And now, here he is according Laura Ingraham all the respect that she so richly deserves. That this woman can satirize Michelle Obama for eating ribs all day, and then wonder why anyone would think she was racist is vexing. I actually regret that--the anger, I mean. Frustration with these people, so often, feels useless. And then you see it turned into something like this, and you understand that rage has its purposes.
