Takes on Bush, Dr. Holsinger, Funny Bone

Colbert’s A Cut Up


Stephen Colbert employed his patented dead-pan Friday to take on the Bush Administration and the president’s surgeon general nominee.

As you’ll see in this PageOneQ provided video, you’ll see Colbert taking the piss out of our country’s anti-bent bent.

I’m disappointed by how little progress we’ve made on the gay marriage issue. The gays continue to threaten my happy marriage by threatening to have their own happy marriages.

Colbert goes on to take the piss out of surgeon general nominee Dr. James Holsinger and his famously fanatical paper, “Pathophysiology of Male Homosexuality”:

…In [the paper], Dr. Holsinger proves that male homosexuality is not only unnatural but a threat to public health… I say we get this guy appointed and let him do for homosexuality what previous surgeon generals have done for smoking. For years, we have tolerated smoking, just like we currently tolerate homosexuality, but the surgeon general alerted us to the dangers of smoking with warning labels. With Holsinger at the helm, we can use the same approach for homosexuality. Every gay man and woman should come with a label.

That’d certainly make our lives easier.
