Is there a better monologist than this guy?

Bravo to Viacom's forward thinking in giving this man, Stephen Colbert, his own dealie over there on Comedy Central. Just when his former colleague Steve Carell is striking big gold, it's great to see Colbert get his, too. There's a dearth of intellectual satirists in the Pop Radar right now – pretty much Jon Stewart and... no one else. Maybe Dennis Cramer.

It embiggens my sense of laughter to see that he and his crack staff have been so successful in filling 22 minutes of airtime a night with a new "Scurry Sine-Qua-Non" (TM), the Colbert Report. I also applaud Comedy Central (formerly HA!) for extending his run into 2006 after the trial order.

Things are crackalacking along well here now... all's I need to do is get a bomb-ass disco-ball set of rims in my grill, and I'll be set at 11:30 p.m. each night.

In any case, thank you, Charleston SC, for exporting your best and brightest to New York. Let the brain drain continue!
