      He does it so artfully they often don't recognize their ass when it's sitting on the table in front of them.

        With Jon Stewart, the opening of the show and the "on-location" interview pieces they do (like the one the other night with Aasif Mandvi interviewing Missouri State legislator Wanda Brown, who's sponsored a bill making it illegal to fire someone for owning a gun) are the best part, while his guest interviews often leave me cold.

        Colbert is just the opposite. His bits at the beginning of the show can either be hilariously funny or embarrassingly juvenile - he really runs hot and cold - but his interviews with conservatives are usually masterpieces in the art of making right-wingers reveal what fools they are.

        He's so good at it that I have several conservative friends who are absolutely convinced Colbert really is a conservative. He's really good at lulling them into believing he's on their side, and thus tricking them into saying something really stupid.

        I vote we run Rick Scott out of Florida on a high-speed rail.
