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!
