"We Hit It Off Like a House Afire"

Stephen Colbert remembered his good friend, yes, good friend, Toby Keith last night.  Enjoy.

The ONLY thing good that Colbert has ever done is provide the voice of Phil Ken Sebben and Byron Reducto.

The only five minutes I've ever given Colbert...but seemingly a heart felt tribute. RIP Toby!

I hope you bozos can learn something, but I doubt that you will, I am sure someone will take issue will his heart felt tribute. They were able to meet each other half way.

Why wouldn’t the be friends? They both dutifully performed their roles as “entertainers” in working to propagandize the people and prevent the majority of Americans from questioning the official narratives of the events that took place during the heights of their careers.

Colbert would make opposition jokes about Dubya but never called out any of the unconstitutional surveillance policies such as PRISM and the use of foreign “5 eyes” partners to circumvent the constitution and surveil the American people.

Nope they just kept singing patriotic songs and making harmless knee-slapping jokes for guffaws while partying together off-stage.

Incredibly nice ... and I don't care for Colbert either. But great advice -- quit judging. I'll take that to heart.

I know about some of Kingfish's oddities, but even for HIM, I will not read or view anything from Colbert or Maher, two of KF's favorites.

I'd like to add this as a proper sendoff to our friend Toby.

With apologies to the City of Madison.

RIP Toby said...

While Colbert fueled the political bigotry for way too long, it does appear that he's had some kind of epiphany. But, even with that display, there are some commenters that just can't help but continue to spew negativity. SMH

@8:36 says it very well, hell, yes, they got along, because they are entertainers. It's all show business; had the script called for them to fight it out, they would've because it's what those who influence the media tell them to do. They don't have to do it, of course; they can go get another job like, say, moving furniture. But they go with the flow, take the easy way, and enjoy their unmerited celebrity status.

While it's a nice tribute, yes, Colbert is the worst of the late night hosts. And while it has nothing to do with any of this, I have always been curious why, with all the money he surely has, Colbert doesn't he go get that ear of his fixed.

Unlike 90% of the above posters, I can honestly say that I have never watched Colbert or that Maddow guy, not once, ever.

I see that the political-purity police are out in force.

They're like the American Taliban.

@ 10:39 - If you can watch, read or listen to Colbert without making a negative remark, you're a much better man than I.

Like so many false-newscasters, he's made a real nice living being an asshole.

At 6:12 2/9 - "Maddow guy", lol! Funnier than Colbert. I'm not surprised that Colbert got along with TK, because TK was a class act who could probably get along with anybody for at least a short time. It was nothing to do with Colbert being magnanimous, rather that Toby was. RIP TK! x

Toby has never been accused of being 'magnanimous', lol. He was bold, outspoken and said what he had to say. He simply tolerated assholes on rare occasion. Prolly been smokin' a fat one with Willie and was in a blended mood. R.I.P.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets.
