If only Stephen Colbert had read Paper Treiger

A good friend is extremely fond of Stephen Colbert, but somewhat less committed to actually watching his every word than I am. So when I do watch The Late Show with Stephen Colbert (to say nothing of the Colbert Report before it) every next-morning, I try to pass along his best work as a public service.

Truth(iness) is, the worthwhile pieces have been noticeably fewer and farther between since Stephen made the switch to CBS, despite the fact that he now has twice as long on the air — not to mention Fridays! Indeed, this past Friday’s show contained just the third LSSC clip I felt moved to forward [redacted]’s way. The clip in question was, in my opinion, vintage Colbert:

About a minute and a half into that clip, Colbert begins to discuss Marco Rubio’s ad, “Morning Again in America”, infamous for including stock footage from Canada. I won’t bother with a play-by-play because you really should just watch the clip for yourself, but I will say this: the graphics accompanying Colbert’s rendition of the ad were perfect… save for one tiny element that was conspicuously out of place (circled in yellow):

Morning in America Rubio logo

If only someone had put together a Marco Rubio logo better-suited to the occasion. (Disclaimer: You may have to click through that hyperlink for this post to make any real sense. Sorey.)

  1. THE ( 1994 ) ANGELS IN THE OUTFIELD MOVIE WAS ONE OF THE BEST & I WOULD WATCH IT AGAIN IF I COULD. THEY SHOULD BRING THAT MOVIE BACK.
