    The Colbert Report is always a decent and enjoyable show, but today's episode was pretty dull. There was nothing that memorable and nothing really stood out during his political ranting today, and the jokes that he supplemented it were nothing to right home about either. And for the second night in a row the interview was really dull and it seemed like Stephen Colbert was going too easy on him. Now, when the guest is a celebrity or something I understand that, but he should have taken this moron who claims to be studying economics for 16 years to task for his outrageous and simple-minded claims.

    I did like his comment about baseball games having the risk of boredom though.moreless

    • Stephen: Tonight: Is Newt Gingrich having trouble staying on message? Not if message is the name of his receptionist. Then: White House economic advisor Austan Goolsbee is here to talk about raising the debt ceiling. But wouldn't it be cheaper to put in a debt skylight? Starbucks is being sued for firing a dwarf, or as Starbucks calls him, a tall. This is the Colbert Report.
