On last night's Colbert Report, Stephen interviewed Joshua Micah Marshall of Talking Points Memo. If you're unfamiliar with TPM, it's sort of like PerezHilton.com, except one of them is primarily focused on covering vain, over-payed, perverted egomaniacs while the other is PerezHilton.com.
The Colbert Report airs Monday through Thursday at 11:30pm / 10:30c.

Some guy, M.J. Rosenberg — Director of Policy for Israel Policy Forum or something — over at TPM Cafe is really feeling exceptionally gloaty this morning.
Ordinarily, I just skip right over posts like this in my Google Reader, but this one was so thick with liberal partisan self-satisfaction that I practically got splattered with patchouli-smelling schadenfreude as I scrolled past it…
I was just reading the rightist blogs on the President's triumph at Notre Dame. These are really the worst of time for the bad guys. And it is critically important that we enjoy their misery because it may not last forever. (On the other hand, it might)…
These guys are in agony. They are living their worst nightmare. Not only is a liberal Democrat in the White House, but he's the reincarnation of FDR. He's politically deft. He's popular. He has a beautiful family. He has the supreme confidence of a JFK and the political skills of Clinton but without the character flaws. And, like FDR, and LBJ, he intends to transform America.
Muahahahahahahahaha! Nothing can possibly go wrong! Why, we haven't seen one political party so completely dominate the other since… since… four years ago when the Republicans plowed over the Democrats so badly that many thought liberalism was completely dead! And that victory lasted forever!
It's pure Democratic gold, I tells ya! Pure Democratic gold!
Tune in tomorrow when we discover that President Obama has been conducting a long-term sexual relationship with an underage, male, Swine Flu-infected Chupacabra.
