  • I was really hoping he would nail Toby in this one.

    The format of the show makes it somewhat confusing, because he pretends to be such a harline right-winger. I suppose it\'s not surprising that Stephen didn\'t go after him for his right-wing anti-protester antics, but he usually manages to get subtle jabs in with an innocent look on his face even when pretending to agree with someone.

    I was hoping he would nail Toby on his treatment of war protesters, but he basically just talked about smoking pot on Willie Nelson\'s bus, which was pretty funny considering Willie Nelson got nailed days later for possesion. Overall, I was disappointed becuase it wasn\'t as confrontation as I had hoped, but as always, it was entertaining and funny. What I like about both the Colbert Report and The Daily Show is that the guests feel more inclined to say whatever comes to mind instead of running things through their \"media filter\".
