Stephen Colbert's Top 7 Drug Moments

In a shameless, yet brilliant, ploy to generate web traffic, comedy Central has compiled a list of their favorite drug-themed Stephen Colbert clips. It worked on me. Here's the link.

My personal favorite is when Stephen bids farewell to Marijuana Policy Project's Aaron Houston by saying "good luck destroying America." Aaron is the nicest guy you'll ever meet and the very notion that he's trying to destroy America is the perfect encapsulation of drug warrior paranoia.

The fact that Colbert has created a whole satirical routine surrounding the delusional mindset of the drug war cheerleaders is testament to the complete laughingstock that group has become.

Colbert is a dumbarse looking for a place to happen. His knowledge of marijuana prohibition and the realities thereof is abisimal. Colbert broadcast his ignorance daily. He has no credibilty when it comes to the "drug prohibition" issue. Lou Dobbs is the #1 jackarse actually.

colbert is joking; how do you not see that?

have you ever watched his show? do you understand satire?

his whole on-air persona is meant to ridicule far-right douche bags and culture warriors, and his character's stance on tweed is just another example. do you think anyone could seriously list bears (godless killing machines, as colbert calls them) as the nation's biggest threat?

Satire is an ONDCP specialty. Surely they don`t believe that garbage. Colbert`s show is a representation of a far right clown somewhat. It`s made him wealthy. As a man thinks, so is he. Just one word can have multiple meanings. If Colbert wants to be a clown, then he should seek the services of Captain Spaulding.
