Remember the very short-lived half hour show called D.C. FOLLIES with fantastic satire and witty repartee? The scenario for each show was always the same bar in Wash D.C., and the only straight man was a bartender (an actor) who had conversations with all his customers - muppets like Dolly Parton, ex Presidents, Rambo, Scooter Libby, etc. That TV show was so brutally hysterically funny while 100% truthful, Washington, D.C. could not stand it - so had it taken off the air! Colbert with his "spin" on things might bring about a revival of a TV political satire show using puppets; why let kids have all the fun?
