Stephen Colbert comedically hit back at Bill O'Reilly last night (with a bonus swipe at Sean Hannity). You could call it a matter of dueling charity auctions: O'Reilly's Super Bowl interview notes vs. Colbert's stolen microwave. Regardless of the outcome, we're the winners, at least comedically speaking.
In case you missed it, Colbert is auctioning off a microwave oven he says he stole from The O'Reilly Factor's green room. Like O'Reilly's interview notes, all proceeds will go to charity. Colbert said last night:
This microwave is just like Bill O’Reilly. It’s a little old, it’s a little square and it does not care what you’re saying. …It will cut your mike.
In response to O'Reilly's swipe at him, Colbert ribbed:
I wasn’t mocking you. I was celebrating you. Just taking some of the weight off your shoulders. Why does it always have to be you talking about how great you are?
