Righteous Indignation speaks to Asshole Idiot

Malcolm Gladwell has a new podcast called Revisionist History where he deconstructs what we think is how the world works. In his last episode of the podcast’s first season, The Satire Paradox, he explains why Jon Stewart packed it in last year and went off to become a hermit on his wife’s farm for rescued animals- satire doesn’t work.

This year, we’ve seen Stephen Colbert try to make the transition from satire to mainstream late night with mixed results. The other night, he connected. It wasn’t satire. No, it was something else. It sounded like Stephen turned out collective exasperation with Trump into something more like righteous indignation %^&*ing the lying asshole. He makes Donald look like an old, stupid conman and his supporters like a bunch of chumps. Trump’s going to lose his combover when he sees this. This is NOT satire. You can push a liberal too far:

He’s going to have to go to Confession for that.

    Meanwhile, the Libertarian candidate for President of the USA, former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson, just picked up two celebrity endorsements.

    [/snark] 😉

  6. In a similar vein, Drew Magary of GQ takes no prisoners.
