Madame Tussauds to Unveil Stephen Colbert Wax Figure! Why Immortalize Colbert? Dear God, Why?

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Madame Tussauds Washington says it has created a wax likeness of television personality and political satirist Stephen Colbert.

Madame Tussauds D.C. said it is renovating its Media Room and creating a replica set of The Colbert Report where guests will be able to interact and take photos behind the desk, seated next to the figure."



I do not understand the fascination that the elite have with Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart. These two gentlemen, supposedly comics, have programs in a 3rd rate cable network, and if there were a God in heaven they wouldn`t make any impact on the pop culture scene.

Common folks wouldn`t know Colbert or Stewart from a piece of dog turd on the street. It`s brainless politicians and entertainers who have elevated these morons into superstars. Not once has a family member, neighbor, stranger or work colleague asked me: Did you watch Colbert last night?

I`m a liberal, and I could care less if these jerks share my political ideology, they simply aren`t funny. They are annoying, irritating, egotistical, simplistic and anything but funny.

Colbert`s entire shtick is parodying Bill O`Reilly, that might work as a one-time skit on "Saturday Night Life", but it gets boring real quick as a regular talk show.

Madame Tussauds museum has lost whatever credibility it once enjoyed.
