Yeah. He is “just” a comedian. But, in this particular case, Mr Colbert becomes another patsy to an idiot (David Aaronovitch) who is helping cover up and confuse Americans. A quick Google search gives plenty of info on this hack, but I want to share a couple of quotes from his Wiki page that shows me that he is full of shit and his judgment is worthless. Just like parading Karl Rove and Dick Cheney around as “experts”, this fool comes out of the woodwork, after making a total fool of himself just a few years ago. But what do you bet the “left” will gobble this shit up since Colbert had him on. Stephen, you should be ashamed, for you are smarter than this. But, you are a “comedian”, right? Well, you weren’t even slightly funny and sound like another Sheople who appears to care less that he is helping corral the rest of the sheople into their death chute.
“I don’t believe that Saddam is a major backer of al-Qaeda (though he gives support to other groups) and I think it quite likely that he has had no effective nuclear programme for years. He would if he could, but he can’t. But I want him out, for the sake of the region (and therefore, eventually, for our sakes), but most particularly for the sake of the Iraqi people who can’t lift this yoke on their own. If they could, that would be best; if he would agree to go into exile, that would be just dandy. The argument that Saddam’s removal will of necessity lead to ‘chaos’ or the democratic election of an unsuitable Islamist government is worthy of Henry Kissinger at his most cynical. It is pretty disgusting when heard in the mouths of ‘left-wingers’. The Iraqi people, however, can’t shift their tyrant on their own. Again, it would be preferable if an invasion could be undertaken, not by the Americans, but by, say, the Nelson Mandela International Peace Force, spearheaded by the Rowan Williams British Brigade. That’s not on offer. It has to be the Yanks. I do not believe that George Bush is the manic oil-chimp of caricature. His administration really does have a view that it is necessary to remove Saddam pour décourager les autres. It will, they have convinced themselves, show resolve, deter state terrorism, discourage proliferation and permit the building of a rare non-tyranny in the Arab world. There is something to be said for all this.”
No, dumbass, there is no chaos now, is there? He thought that “chimp”, using illegal rationale and invasions to overthrow Saddam Hussein would lead to a wonderful little world in the ME. That the Democracy we would bring would discourage other Arab Countries from tyranny, etc (yet we sidle up to Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and many other tyrannical regimes in the world: can you spell “hypocrite”). Can anyone listen to this man and give him credence? How could Stephen have not known what an erroneous fool he is?
“If nothing is eventually found, I – as a supporter of the war – will never believe another thing that I am told by our government, or that of the US ever again. And, more to the point, neither will anyone else. Those weapons had better be there somewhere. They probably are.”
Hey, Dumbass desperately seeking his limelight after making such a comment, STFU. You have no credibility. Not only were they not “probably there”, it was all lies in the first place. And what was that about “never believe another thing that you are told by your government“, yet you want to believe them regarding 911 (the very catastrophic event that made it possible for you to support illegally invading Iraq). You feel it necessary to write a book discounting conspiratorial theories, yet the very government story is, itself, a conspiracy theory. Sorry, fuckwad. You FAIL.
” In February 2003 Matthew (Parris) wrote that he would be against a war in Iraq even if there were WMD, even if it were authorised by the UN, even if a liberated Iraq was then stable, and concluded: “I’m against war because it will antagonise moderate Arab opinion.” And the Iraqi people? To be massacred, shredded, gassed, beheaded, suppressed, starved, immiserated, terrorised and tortured because all of that would be less bad than antagonising moderate Arab opinion. An Iraqi democrat stands in front of an armchair anti- interventionist, and is invisible. I do apologise. For Abu Ghraib and Donald Rumsfeld. For not understanding the insurgents. For the looting. For the dire planning. I apologise to the election workers assassinated, the police trainees blown up, the parents of children caught in crossfire and everyone else that the planners and executors of the invasion that I supported, and still support, may have let down by neglect or stupidity. I recognise their bravery and their determination to succeed despite everything. But a disaster compared with what? Compared with Saddam and sanctions or Saddam and cyanide. And that — the thing that Matthew presumably preferred — was not a disaster? Snort.”
Snort on, you coke ravaged fucker. Let’s see here. You were pissed that someone was against this war. You felt that you needed to tear into him because he was right and you were wrong. You apologize for the fools who took us there, for their mismanagement and shitty planning of the killing of hundreds of thousands of Iraqis, for their stupidity and/or neglect, but you applaud those very same monsters for their “bravery”. It appears that you are saying in this quote that you apologize for the fuckup, but STILL support it.
Yes, snort, dumbass, as the disaster you cheer-led into existence is shown to be the worst, most horrifying illegal event this country has ever participated in.
And, you, Stephen Colbert. You have pissed me off for being this prick’s bitch. You have a week to make amends or lose me as a viewer. Asshole.

I post this, not because it is funny (it is not), but because Stephen just allowed a puppet on his show to spread the bullshit lies about the Iraq War and the purpose of us being there. It is high time we stop that silly charade and tell it like it is.
Michael Steele’s Rap Battle Response
In accordance with hip-hop’s longstanding fairness doctrine, Stephen presents Michael Steele’s response.
Haley Barbour gets to decide whether or not Mississippi should stop the selling of children. I am from there and yes, this is a perfect example of their timeliness in attitude and deed. Over at LeftinAlabama melmel posted something about Sasha Baron Cohen doing a number on the Alabama National Guard and thought that it was a bit embarrassing.
He has no idea.
Stephen knew there was a correlation between beer pong and herpes — he just didn’t know it could happen during the game.
