Did Colbert Steal Klingon Joke?


Posted September 21, 2007 - By Mike D'Alonzo

Stephen Colbert has been accused of stealing a joke from an Air America radio show, reagrding how Republicans are like Klingons, in that they are all trying to say it's more honorable to win the war in Iraq than it is to win the presidency. Cenk Uygur, the host of the radio show in question, has threatened to sue Colbert for $65 million over the joke.

Now, you'll notice that this isn't the most interesting joke in the world, and certainly not worth $.65, let alone $65 million. Also, Stephen Colbert doesn't have to steal jokes from anyone, certainly not a bagger who wants to raise his personality profile by taking on one of the funniest men in show business. We'd like to call for a boycott of Young Turks, the Air America radio show Uygur hosts, in support.
