Colbert Report: The Transformation of Society

The US government has been violating the constituion and trampling on the bill of rights since virtually the inception of the country. The history of the US, like the history of every other country, is littered with the corpses of nice-sounding ideals, from false flag frame-ups to lead the nation into war to the persecution and even execution of political dissidents. But the point is that 50 years ago, America wanted to believe it was a nation of ideals, and many people did believe that. So what changed?...

Stephen Colbert Salutes U.Va.'s Class of 2013

Stephen Colbert delivers the 2013 Valedictory Address at the University of Virginia. He first steals the show by pretending to steal the class check, a gift to U.Va., saying he would have spoken for free. He has some other fun moments before shifting gears to share some advice. Rain moves the ceremony from its traditional site on the lower Lawn to the John Paul Jones Arena. About 12,000 graduates and family members gather for the ceremony there.

Colbert: Takedown of the Debt Monster

Thomas Herndon, a grad student, found a simple Excel spreadsheet error (and some missing data from countries such as Canada and Australia) in the study that has been used by Conservatives around the world such as Paul Ryan to argue for austerity that is, cutting government spending and social services.

The study encouraged conservative governments in other countries to kill government jobs and spending. It didnt work, and in fact, has caused a lot of suffering for many people. In an economic recession, its much better for all if the government spends money rather than pulling back.

So basically, the whole economic theory was based on flaws, and those flaws were discovered by a grad student.

Stephen Colbert is in rare form in this clip. Enjoy!

U Didn't Build That by MC 'Bama

Barack Obama raps about "You Didn't Build That", Mitt Romney, and the 2012 campaign to the tune of MC Hammer's "U Can't Touch This".

Featuring cameos from Clint Eastwood, Stephen Colbert, Hulk Hogan, Julia Gillard, and Jennifer Granholm.

Lyrics below.

By Hugh Atkin


Mitt Romney strikes me, so hard.

Makes me feel like Shirley Sherrod.

Out of context, those words aren't mine.

The private sector's doing fine.

Feels good, when the economy's weak,

Responding with a national security leak.

Osama Bin Laden, I killed.

And that was a mission you didn't build.


If you've given three dollars before,

I'm asking again for a few dollars more.

Clint Eastwood and the empty chair

Would be bettter than this Republican pair.

Shut up, it's my turn.

Let's rap together. Go ahead. You've got a lot to learn.

Mr Ryan and his voucher retailin'.

Maybe he's just a brighter shade of Palin.

Mr Romney...and his friends on Wall Street.

What I'm saying is they're SuperPacking Heat.

And here is a woman Mitt killed.

But that was an attack ad you didn't build.



Stop. Obamatime.

The race is still in play.

So I gotta be careful about what I say.

And so, from the Australian nation,

I'll be introducing the Strine translation.

The Republican party in the debt ceiling fight.

Ravings of the eccentric, lunar right.

There are those who don't believe my birth certificate.

There are nut jobs on the internet.

To your guns keep on clinging.

To myself I'll be singing...

"I so in love with you."

What we need now is the Colbert Bump.

But, just for a minute lets all do the Trump.

Trump, Trump, Trump. Yeeeaah. Not bad, huh?



Hogan, this is the real American booking.

Do you smell what Barack is cooking?

Morning in America? Not quite.

It's pre-dawn, but we will soon see the light.

Financial straits remain dire.

You've got to remember I did not start this fire.

It was Notorious G.O.P.

And if you choose to vote for me,

I will not just call you maybe.

I am ready to go all the way, baby.

That promise will be fulfilled.

So join this chorus, you didn't build.
