Even more so than Jon Stewart and The Daily Show, Stephen Colbert and The Colbert Report occupy this weird bit of space between parody and reality that makes them almost invincible to accountability.
Colbert voices all of our criticisms of ‘Mad Men’.

The big news in basic cable this weekend was that Stephen Colbert, comedian and host of Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report" has arrived in Iraq for a week of taping the program from an actual war zone. It's a bold move on Comedy Central's part and, depending on your definition of "war zone," potentially a very brave move on Colbert, himself. But some could argue that Colbert still has a lot of work to do if he wants to rival his colleague, "The Daily Show" host Jon Stewart in the race to be dubbed a Real American Hero. Loyal reader Ron Najor made such an argument in an impassioned email sent to Screen Junkies this weekend, and we liked it so much, we thought we'd publish it. Unlike the majority of posts on SJ, this is a completely serious rant. But don’t panic. We embedded some funny clips.
