stephen colbert asks, "how dare she?

In yesterday's Colbert Report Stephen asked Tara Conner:
"How dare you betray the pageant system by behaving like a sex object?"
(from THE WORD segment, entitled TIT FOR TAT)

Both John Stewart and Stephen Colbert had some good commentary on this story yesterday. It reached a level of absurdity that demanded their attention.

However, it was a bit like shooting fish in a barrel for Stewart and Colbert since the story involves Donald Trump. The second Trump came into the story the audiences began to laugh -- before the joke was even finished. They automatically know that he's the punch line.

Is there a more perfect representation of the comic grotesque?

I am such a tool.

Rod Serling's premonitions about the future have come true. We have entered the Twilight Zone and Donald Trump is our self-annointed moral compass of what behavior is appropriate (or not.)
