Rush Limbaugh, who only does comedy unintentionally, reacted to the news that Stephen Colbert would be replacing David Letterman by saying that CBS had now “declared war on the heartland of America” and was mounting an “assault on traditional American values.”
Limbaugh said this is a sign that the networks have just decided to be blatantly against traditional America in their programming, explaining, “No longer is comedy going to be a covert assault on traditional American values, conservatives––now it’s just going to be wide out in the open. What this hire means is a redefinition of what is funny and a redefinition of what is comedy.”
Limbaugh also trashed Colbert as a “partisan, so-called comedian” whose comedy is a departure from the kind of thing Letterman and Johnny Carson did back in the day.
You go, Rush. You go.
