I am waiting in line at the supermarket. Strike up a convo with a pregnant woman in front of me about the Colbert Report. She tells me she <3's Stephen Colbert SOOOO much that she plans on naming her twins Stephen & Colbert. I think to myself...sounds a little whacky, but hey to each his own.
Then she starts saying about how great it is he can speak about his conservative views while other conservatives get roundly abused. She wishes she could do the same. She was quite serious. Definitely not joking. Hmmm. Okay, guess she doesn't get his humor...he's making fun of conservatives thats how he can get away with it.
She paid and left. I didn't explain to her about his humor and she will probably name her children after Stephen Colbert in a month or two...
I guess there is a moral dilemma here. My g/f says I should have said something - that even if the woman was an idiot, I should have corrected her. I dunno whatever. I figure she'll get it eventually and by that time it won't matter to her anyway.
