The future must not belong to those that slander the name of Miller.

Blasphemer!



LOL ...

Frankly Scarlet, I don't have a snip about either of them.


Watch Dennis Millers Rants on Intelligence.

Aside from the F bombs.

It's right on the money,

Dennis Miller is in the same category as Bill Maher.

Effete, partisan snobs.

Sadly in today's age,I don't think it has anything to do with free speech.It has to do with the advertisers.If they get a whiff of controversy and think it might hurt the bottom line,Mr. Colbert would probably be on his way out.

Are you confusing your head with your fingers or some other body part again?

You Googled but didn't read, LOL.

As usual, pomposity doesn't look good on you.

Except that Maher is still working.

Haven't seen Miller produce anything since around 2010

Out of my 46 years some people don't know what comedy is.
Dennis Miller is a comedian.
Colbert is a political hack.

Funny, I would have reversed it.
Perspective is all.

I agree. 9/11 changed Miller from clever to sad. I watched him riffing off of lies to get laughs from his right-wing echo chamber and that's when he lost all cred. At best, you can compare them as comics who see the world through different political lenses...but I think that if you put their tax returns side-by-each, the numbers will tell the tale.

He's not still spewing on Fox News as a guest commentator or been upgraded to "Judge" based on his time on a reality show?

Hmmm. Oh well.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

Miller lost touch with his humor after 9/11, and he never recovered.

Whoa! We have a badass, here!


I do math in my head that an uneducated lightweight like you couldn't do with a scientific calculator.


Wow.
Such intelligence.
Much smarts.
Me stoopid.

Let's hope not. Their ability to influence the choices of companies has only incentivized manufactured outrage. They've been given too much power up until now.

Right or left, puritanical pressure groups should be laughed out of existence.

Perfect statement of the state of right-wing delusion in this country.

Simplistic, short-sighted and dull.

55% of Americans didn't vote for Trump; and his disapproval hovers around the same number ...

But keep telling yourself you're on the "winning" team, LOL.

I think that as a conservative, and someone who dislikes our outrage culture, that Colbert should not only not be fired, but should continue making jokes as he sees fit. I do not agree with him politically, but I think he is sometimes funny, and I actually chuckled at his joke.

People on the right need to have no right to accuse others of being overly sensitive if they can't take jokes against their ideas or people they support.

I will say though that it is worth pointing out that there is a double standard and no one would have dared made fun of Obama in such a way. In fact, many on the left that are defending Colbert were the same people saying Trump could not criticize judges because he needs to respect that office.

Again, just another example of the hypocrisy of many on the left. Just like skin color, weight and rape jokes are outrageous and never to be tolerated, unless they are directed to people on the right, now we can add gay jokes to the list.

Absolutely meaningless.

The public has never elected their president since the creation of the EC.

You do you boo.

I also thought the remark was hilarious, and especially ironic when comparing Colbert's allegiances to certain Presidents and candidates to the relationship between Trump and Putin. I think we all know where the real holster is.
