I agree. It depends on how you take the question. Dems in general have always pushed for a way out of Iraq, so a muslim Dem is going to take the heat more than a christian. However if you think comment was based on bigotry, which most people probably will, then a muslim is getting religiously profiled. Either way I'm not surprised by the question.

Republicans at this point are looking for a scape goat because they know they won't get to spend war money the same way, so why not pick on the muslim. OH NOES He's a Muslim!!!111!!!! BFD. As long as he's not a Jihadist who cares, just let him do his job and bugger off.

The thing about Stewart and Colbert is that you must be literate about the news to get the humor. Eventhough the audiance is mostly stoned slackers.

I figured that Colbert would be loved by the GOP and all Bush lovers

No, there was a tift between Bill ORilley and Jon Stewart where Bill called the viewers of the Daily Show "Stone Slackers". I think the original comment was made on Jon's show. It was mildly amusing at the time but then Comedy Central did some market research and found out that on average the the viewers of the Daily Show has more education, and were better informed on current events than the average viewer of The Factor.
