Farewell, "Colbert Report"!!!!

Aaaargh!  Washington Water Woman is slowly coming out of denial that it is really over.

This show has been a MAJOR influence on this blog, in case my Gentle Readers did not notice!

I actually never saw Stephen on "The Daily Show," and only discovered his mind-blowing talent when I caught his Mother-of-all-Lampoons at the 2006 White House Correspondents' Dinner

When the "conservative" blowhard celebrated Iraq because "the government that governs least is the government that governs best", I almost fell out of my chair laughing.  It was the first time I had seen anybody say to President Bush's face, "The Emperor has no clothes."  And that is why he became my new media hero--and a media hero to many others.

It will be a long, sad wait to see what he does on the Late Show, but it just won't be the same.  It will be good, and maybe even great (the guy is funny, and he can sing, and he is the most rapid-fire thinker in interviews!), but it just won't be the same!

Thank you for delivering the medicine with a heaping spoonful of sugar, Stephen!  Aaaargh, you will be missed.

Washington Water Woman's weekend plans are a bit wobbly this weekend--apologies in advance if the next blog post is delayed.
