  •  I really hope.. (0+ / 0-)

    ..that you don't throw out your back while bending over backwards to defend the attackers of Colbert.  Even in this thread, it is very difficult to find someone of Asian descent that doesn't understand satire.  The diarist clearly does, and the vast majority of involved commenters do.  It is only a tiny sliver of folks who didn't get the joke.

    The battle is over.  They lost.  Colbert won.

    •  Keep hammering on that "doesn't understand satire" (0+ / 0-)

      Because if you can say oh, silly people, they just don't get the joke, then you don't have to face the actual problem.

      •  How to you rationalize the huge numbers of folks (0+ / 0-)

        ..in this thread who are of Asian descent and have no problem with his use of language for satire?  If the few who are upset accurately understand the situation, then the only logical alternative for not being upset is... what, exactly?

        •  How do you rationalize (0+ / 0-)

          utterly ignoring those in this thread who are of Asian descent and do have a problem with it, despite understanding perfectly well that it was for satire?

          And would you care to give an actual number count for that "huge numbers" and "few"?
