Colbert Thrilled by Conservative Confusion

Jun 1, 2009  •  Post A Comment


Stephen Colbert tells the Los Angeles Times that he’s "thrilled" by a recent Ohio State University study that found most conservatives it polled viewed Colbert was also conservative.


"From the very beginning, I wanted to jump back and forth over the line of meaning what I say, and the truth of the matter is I’m not on anyone’s side, I’m on my side," Mr. Colbert tells the newspaper. He’s worked hard since gaining his own show more than three years ago, spending at least 12 hours a day perfecting his show, the publication says. "It’s a new show, and I’m a control freak," he tells the Times.
