In case you were wondering — and let’s be real, surely you were — right-wing talk show host Rush Limbaugh weighed in CBS’ decision to hire Stephen Colbert to replace David Letterman this afternoon on his AM radio hot air party, and basically Colbert replacing Letterman is the end of everything America holds precious and dear.
“CBS has just declared war on the heartland of America,” Limbaugh said this afternoon. “No longer is comedy going to be a covert assault on traditional American values, conservatives…now it’s just going to be wide out in the open. What this hire means is a redefinition of what is funny and a redefinition of what is comedy.”
So there you have it, folks. Straight from the horse’s ass’ mouth. Also, note that Limbaugh believes comedy as it currently exists is a “covert assault on traditional American values.” I’m pretty sure they say the same thing about comedy in North Korea.
