Stephen Colbert took on Glenn Beck again last night, this time "defending" the Fox News star by comparing Beck's sincerity to his own. Cobert showed clips of both he and Beck spouting insane conspiracy theories and sobbing on air, ending with a line destined for history: "It's like looking into a mirror...after you've done a ton of coke off it." He went to say, "Clearly Glenn Beck is as sincere in what he says and does as I am in believing baby carrots are trying to turn me gay."
This isn't the first time Colbert has ripped Beck apart. In March of this year he mocked Glenn's doomsday scenarios by creating a doom bunker; in April he slammed Beck for building his career on the back of 9/11; and, most recently, he took on Beck's advertiser exodus after Glenn called the president "racist."
When Stephen began the "Colbert Report" he modeled his satire off of Bill O'Reilly's show. But as Beck's dominance has grown, and his antics become more and more wild, I think it's fair to say Colbert might have a new "papa bear."
