I love the Colbert Reports satire. The Daily Show makes jokes, the Colbert Report is a joke. I liked the one when Colbert interviewed the guy about our privacy rights. The guy said he would let his wife or girlfriend listen in, but not his president. Colbert would not drop it, he just kept asking if his girlfriend knew what he was doing. It was absolutely hilarious. Or when he has a huge liberal on his show and he asks, George Bush, great president, or the greatest president. Then he told one guy, for the record Ben Franklin said great. Then it cuts to him interviewing Ben Franklin, and Ben Franklin says, I have honestly never met the man, so Colbert whispers to himself, so I'll put you down for great.
Colbert Report is just pure comic genious, right up there with south park in terms of satire.
I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me.

I bet for about 1/3 of the people who watch don't get what is really going on when they show the Fox News clips. Since the 2000 election, Fox News's republican-ness is super obvious. Like 2 weeks after the Dick Chaney incident, they showed news clips of people saying it wasn't a big deal. Every single one was associated with Fox. What I find funny is how he doesn't mention any of the obvious bias-ness of Fox.
Colbert seems to like to try and poke fun his guest by putting words in their mouth just to see how they'll react. The reactions are almost funnier than what he says at times. Jon Stewart discusses issues and makes more jokes about what they are taking about rather than what the person thinks.
I love Colbert, and he was always my favorite correspondent while he was on the daily show, but I like the Daily Show more than the COlbert Report. CR has not yet taken the crown from DS in my opinion.
They're both so funny. I would have to say Daily Show right now, I just like it better. But in fairness, I don't get to see the Colbert Report as often. I would like to watch it, but for me to stay up till midnight, I'd only get 6 and a half hours of sleep.
