Stephen Colbert weighs in on the various Olympic snafus, and then he hones in on Russia’s Olympic demonstration sport: Gay-bashing.
Colbert: “It’s not only the media attacking these Olympic games. They’re also under threat from an extremist terror group: The gays.”
Colbert then announces that he’s going back to the Olympics:
Well nation, I am going back to the Olympics!
Is something I would say if they weren’t in Russia.
Colbert sends Buddy Cole to meet with openly-gay ambassador to the OSCE Dan Baer:
Actually, though Cole camps it up, Amb. Baer does a good job of playing the straight-guy (so to speak), and actually explaining the anti-gay law and the situation in Russia. The piece was a bit too campy honestly. I’m not sure it wasn’t too over the top. See what you think.
