All that isn’t enough, apparently for radio gasbag Rush Limbaugh, who believes Colbert to be way too liberal: “CBS has just declared war on the heartland of America.” Limbaugh said. “No longer is comedy going to be a covert assault on traditional American values. Now, it’s just wide out in the open.”
Unlike Limbaugh and the political correctness lobby, we’re not really concerned about Colbert’s race, religion, gender, sexual preferences or politics. If we are concerned about anything, it’s about knowing we’ll miss “The Colbert Report” following “The Daily Show” on Comedy Central. We’ll miss Letterman’s dry wit, too.
We believe Stephen Colbert shouldn’t have to worry about being too white, too male, too straight or too Christian. All he should worry about is putting on a good show.
