Without explanation, his act was reduced to "extreme commentator".  He plays an extreme ''right wing'' commentator, specifically.  That's the whole point of the show. Can anyone explain, please? [[User:Human|Human]] 18:27, 1 May 2007 (EDT)

::OK, I'll buy that.  Can the article say that?  It would sort of be a double-parody - explaining that he does not, in the view of those he think she is parodying, accurately portray their positions?  How about "[he plays] an extreme left wing stereotype of an extreme right wing commentator"?  Pretty fair and balanced, and accurate in that it mentions that his "extreme" parody or attempt at it is politically charged.

Stephen Colbert's name has a French pronunciation -- that's not very American. I say this article should be removed.--Jesus_H_Christ 23:18, 23 March 2007 (EDT)

Any reason why the part about the Correspondents' Dinner was removed? Also the statement about Colbert's intention with the Wikipedia vandalizing is speculative at best and should probably be removed.--ColinR 18:59, 12 March 2007 (EDT)

Here's a link to the Correspondents' Dinner speech on Google Video: Colbert Roasts President Bush - 2006 White House Correspondents Dinner

The Sunday school teacher remark needs a cite--I know it's true, but it really should be cited. Here's a good website, I'd edit if I could. (http://www.tvsquad.com/2006/07/13/ask-tv-squad-stephen-colbert-teaches-sundayschool/) Also, the Correspondent's dinner should be added. As much as I hate what he did, it is our duty to tell the truth on this site. --Splark 21:30, 14 March 2007 (EDT)

Why would you hate what he did? He's the greatest American ever! Stephen Colbert is a champion of truth and justice. Come on, he got Captain America's shield!!--Dialecticftw 06:24, 15 March 2007 (EDT)

Truthiness

Instead of "The Trustworthy Encyclopedia," shouldn't Conservapedia's slogan be "The Encyclopedia of Trustiness"? It just feels right.

hmm, Or maybe, Conservapedia: your daily recommended allowance of truthiness? Crackertalk

"right wing" removed?

Without explanation, his act was reduced to "extreme commentator". He plays an extreme right wing commentator, specifically. That's the whole point of the show. Can anyone explain, please? Human 18:27, 1 May 2007 (EDT)

He plays what in his view and others is a "right-wing" commentator; but that does not mean the so-called right-wing fits those stereotypes. RobS 21:04, 1 May 2007 (EDT)
