Some people just don't get the joke

Here's a Councilman from New York City being interviewed by a European comedienne. CNN is all over this thing, which goes to prove the MSM is following the Internet for its news.

I love the look on her face when the guy starts into his obscenity-laced tirade. That's a look of pure joy at the comedy gold she's being given!

Language Warning - numerous "f-bombs" dropped with reckless and hilarious abandon. Rated PG-13 (at the very least)

meh.. I don't think it was that funny. She was just out to get a rise out of him, and it was obvious. She also did it without any charm or poise. What's great about Colbert is that he manages to get a handshake at the end.

I would have thrown her out of hte office too, maybe with a little less profanity.. but what this guy came out with was tame compared to what you hear on a trading floor or bond desk, or coming out of Rahm Emmanuels mouth on a daily basis

No, you're right about her lack of subtlety.

But I got a big kick out of Oddo's fast burn after the first question, and the way he went ballistic after the second. This is a guy whose fuse is so short, he'd probably kick Colbert's ass too, no matter how f***ing charming he is. I doubt he'd get a handshake from him.

i dunno.. my fuse is pretty short when it comes to racist/sexist comments. But then, I also live within spitting distance of Basso country (just outside Danbury) so there's alot of it floating around

:(

Heck....I thought that O'Reilly was behind that blond not Colbert.

Aside from the over the top profanity, I'm with him.

I didn't see her questions as either racist or sexist; they were more of the extremely silly and humorously provocative type. It's nearly exactly the same kind of thing you see on the Daily Show when they interview a politician.

Besides, the funny part of the video was seeing dis tough guy from Noo Yawk trowin' dem bums outta his office and threatening dem with a serious ass-kicking!
