The language

I watch Are you experiencedsome (video)clips online at the regular websites (Crooks and Liars and Onegoodmove, as you may have already known), most of time just to view the best parts of ‘The Colbert Report’ and ‘Jon Stewart’s Daily Show’.

Obviously, both shows have gained a lot of popularity in the last couple of years, which is proof of the talents of both show’s hosts. What I find interesting is that both shows target all sides of politics, not just left or just right: the last 8 years their focus was reporting on the current Republican administration’s failures and I have no doubt that they’ll continue the same thing when the Democratic party takes over power. I think the best part of both shows is that they’ve raised the standards of good comedy writing. Take for example this quote from a ‘The word’ segment from The Colbert Report, where Stephen Colbert takes Republican presidential candidate McCain to the task about his comments about decisions in the past and living in the future (OneGoodMove video):

We are where we are. This is where McCain says where we can question him. We can only question him in the pastless and futureless present. This infinitesimal slice of existence, the zero-dimensional theoretical plot point of the now, where eternity intersects time. And if that’s what he’s saying, the question is not, senator, how did you vote or, senator, when will we withdraw, but senator McCain, are you high?

Who wrote this brilliant monologue?
