Does Stephen Colbert Read News Hounds?
Reported by Aunty Em - October 21, 2011 -
When I read Priscilla’s post yesterday “Bill O'Reilly's Book Went Down In Flames!” about a soldier in Afghanistan burning complimentary copies of “Pinheads and Patriots,” I knew it would only be a matter of time before Stephen Colbert, of The Colbert Report, would come to Papa Bear’s defense. Especially after Priscilla said, “At any rate, it's too bad that the soldiers couldn't have used the pages for toilet paper which would be appropriate given that the stuff on the paper is pulled from Bill's ass!” Leave it to Colbert to try and put Priscilla’s words in the best possible light when he spun one for The No Spin Zone: “First of all, soldier, there are plenty of ways Papa Bear's books can be useful on the front lines. You can use them as sand bags, or as armor for a Humvee, or, you know you guys always need toilet paper. I'm sure Bill would be honored.”
However, Colbert didn’t stop with paraphrasing Priscilla. Like a Mama Grizzly coming to the aid of Papa Bear, he also ripped the soldier a new one—as only Colbert can: Hilariously. Watch:
