There are 7 other clips on this page: http://www.colbertnation.com/the-colbert-report-collections/402144/stephen-occupies-occupy/
I haven't watched them but this one was funny. I'm trying to get used to thinking of myself as a male-bodied person.

Colbert is known for being liberal and his whole 'schtick' is based on take-downs of conservatives (by being an exaggerated version of one) so when I first saw this I was very impressed he was willing to skewered the Occupy crowd.
When those two kids start with the finger wiggles, I was speechless; and then thought even more highly of Colbert when he used the word cult, because I could see them drinking the Kool-Aid in Guyana.

Bill, that "female-bodied" thing was almost too perfect. Wish I had been in Colbert's chair, could have had a lot more fun with that one. I also loved how the supposedly leaderless OWS movement has to sneak leadership in under different names. A life-lesson for egalitarians everywhere. I can't help but wonder how much those kids were coached before the show ...
Jeff S., I only know Colbert from a few YouTube clips, not having had television for the past 16 years. I think he skewers conservatives in this clip as well, but with just a little more subtlety. Found this one at Fr. Z's blog so I figured it wouldn't be too bad.

That was a hoot from every angle. I loved it. The best skewering is one of which the victim is completely unaware while it is happening. I take skewering to be, if not an art form, at least a craft. Colbert is a craftsman.
