Joe Biden 2020

Seeing Biden "as himself", as opposed to a speaker for POTUS, reminds me of why I became impressed by him in 2007.  Regardless of your political leanings, feelings toward Biden, hopes for the upcoming primary, I think all have to admit was we saw a politician be real.  NONE of the others do that except for Bernie Sanders.  Even Trump has begun parsing his responses.

Well done, Colbert!

Little Hater:
I thought it was embarrassing. Colbert did everything but kiss Biden on the mouth. If this is the kind of swill we can expect from Colbert, The Late Show will be off the air by Christmas.

If you view seeing an honest exchange and person who is truly, sincerely respectful and admiring "embarrassing", that's where this country has landed.  Can't be real.

But (since I CAN be objective) I do see your point.  IMO, that's what happened to the Joan Rivers show -- maybe before your time.

She made her rep being ruthless and shredding anyone and everyone, but on her show she was gushing and groveling and just SO APPRECIATIVE that these big names had graced her little show.  Huh?

Anyway, that was one show w/Colbert, and if I interviewed Biden I'd probably be pretty much the same.  Give him a pass on this and we'll see where he goes in the future. 

Tarbaby:
I likeed colbert back on the Colbert report but I'm not liking him on this current show.

I don't agree with some of his policies but Biden seems a likable guy and one of the few politicians remaining who just say what they want and not always be checking  in with focus groups and polls before speaking. When he said stuff about Indians etc at 7-11 and then again faking an Indian accent about outsourcing was hilarious. Telling a paraplegic in a wheelchair to stand up was like tent revivalist. Good stuff. His shotgun comments, while likely violating Delaware laws, were classic. Obama being bright and "clean." Hahaha. I hope he is a candidate just for the high-jinx. Debates with him and Trump would be hilarious.
