|Stephen Colbert on the debt ceiling ridicule|
The Social Poets: Funny Stephen Colbert Mocks The Debt Ceiling Angst: "From Denny: Only Colbert would dare to take on the angst riddled politicians and political strategists when it comes to the debt ceiling in need of raising its proverbial roof. Colbert: 'Hey, President Bush did it in 2002, 2003, 2004, 2006, 2007 and twice in 2008.'
He goes on to reveal the hypocrisy of the Republicans in blocking the debt ceiling bill the Democrats were supporting. Never mind it was the Republicans who introduced this same bill. Yes, the Republicans stood up against themselves and voted down their own legislation. Hunh?
Who needs to go to political blogs for the explanation of the truly weird American politics reality show when you can get it from Colbert or Jon Stewart?"
