Did anyone see the Colbert Report last night? The bit during The Word segment had to be the most spot-on satire of American workers that I've ever heard. The word for the evening was "You're Welcome," which is what Colbert wanted to say to the workers of America for accepting no real gain in wages since 19[something or other], for accepting a crappy medical insurance system, for accepting lower taxes on the rich in exchange for higher taxes and fewer services for everyone else, etc., etc., all so that people like him can live better. The final comment was that if the trend continues, then pretty soon American workers' wages will be low enough to compete with the Chinese and jobs will start coming back. Here's the clip.<br><br>. . . . . Here's lookin' at [color:red]you</font color=red> kid.

See? That's another perfect example <br>of why they pre-screen their audiences!<br><br>...Another was when that soldier<br>questioned Cheney about the lack of armor,<br>right in front of God and country, 5 minutes <br>after a speech about supporting our troops.<br><br>...or when that N.O. guy told the DICK to<br>"Go F... Yourself" during the Katrina Photo-Op! <br><br><br>
