I was pretty on the fence over whether this was awesome and hilarious or offensive and crossing the line.

Thank you for pushing me to the right side of the fence.

"...When Colbert was asked by Rep. Judy Chu why he was focusing on this particular issue...[he said]:
'I like talking about people who don’t have any power. And this seems one of the least powerful people in the United States…are migrant workers who come and do our work, but don’t have any rights as a result. And yet, we still invite them to come here, and then at the same time, ask them to leave.

That’s an interesting contradiction to me. And, you know, ‘whatsoever you do for the least of my brothers,’ and these seem to be the least of our brothers. Right now, a lot of people are least brothers right now because the economy’s so hard. And I don’t want to take anyone’s hardship away from them or do anything like that.

But migrant workers suffer, and have no rights.'"

You can just shunt my five stars to here.

If you would get mad about this and call it crossing the line then you are utterly worthless as a human being. Just so you know.

Damn. The Bible quotation was pretty much a FUCK YOU to fellow Catholic (of the crazy variety) Steve King.

Youtube version for people who can't get that damn thing to work.

We are living in an absurd world, when the only way one can make a serious point is to make a joke. The post-modern is really just satire.

Also, the eruption of laughter at the end. Classic.

To me it sounded like the room microphones were turned off during most of his speech, and were only turned back on for that. So people were probably laughing the whole way through, but we just couldn't hear it until then.

jangbones
people who hate government are complaining because he made a mockery of the legislative process

He talked to them like they were mindless consumers of bullshit not to be taken seriously, which is the perfect attitude to have towards politicians.
K. Brass
Hey, Colbert? Sorry I thought your show's premise was worn out and stopped watching. You're all right.
mashedtater

His huge balls are made of steel.

Fox news was right. Some of his facts may be off. Was his grandfather even Irish?
