Ah, Stephen Colbert on election night. He bemoans the fact that Americans are so obsessed with politics. Let that sink in. Colbert made his career by playing a caricature of a right wing television blowhard to the delight of his left-wing audience. It is the liberalism that he has championed throughout his career that has permeated society with noxious attempts to enforce ideological conformity. One can imagine the different tune he would have been singing if Clinton had trounced Trump. If an unexamined life is a tragedy, “funny man” Colbert’s life is a grim tale indeed.
