This is when he was at the height of his Conservative "character" so it's not really a gotcha; he's speaking as that character. |
Sure, you can argue that given his massive downfall (in comedic/progressive terms) he probably now thinks the same way the character he was mocking then, but the idea this low-res snippet has only been viewed 180 because of some conspiracy is nonsense. Type "stephen colbert princeton 2008" into YT and you get half a dozen videos of this, some with 50k views. So not exactly "Found it" more a case of "Picked the least viewed clip of a commonly available video and made out that it was actually the missing frames of the Zapruder film". And you talk about post being surplus to requirements....
Also, unlike most of the other late night gate-keepers he was once funny and actually satirical. Now he can die in a grease fire.
...no amount of cajolery, and no attempts at ethical or social seduction, can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred for the Tory Party...So far as I am concerned they are lower than vermin.
