    I think he has so many ideas that he's going to hit the ground running some time next year.

    There is one aspect of his satire I haven't seen mentioned yet. He has such an upbeat, friendly energy (even when he's being shockingly rude), and he puts so much oomph into his 'Muricaness, that he's surprisingly popular among right-wing viewers. So I know (from visiting my aunt in Texas, with all her older Republican friends) that Colbert has gotten a lot of people to give a second thought to Foxaganda - and these are people who normally never watch MSN or Comedy Central.

    I'm confident that by 2016, someone else will be pushing the envelope Colbert left behind, and the man himself will be surprising and wowing a lot more viewers.
