I have something to confess. I have grown a bit tired of the Daily Show. And The Colbert Report, which starting a bit rocky, has only gotten better and better. The video bits including his 80s music video, the 70s commentary on monorails, and any time he impersonates Wilfred Brimley, are stupendous.
I also feel it is a more open and tolerant show with guests from other points of views and beliefs. Plus he recently made Bush squirm at the White House Correspondents Dinner.
