[JPL] Stephen Colbert disses John Zorn

Hmmm... Are people missing the fact that Colbert almost always means  
the opposite of what he says?  I love the show, and it's all about  
his particular brand of irony.  Whether talking about politics, art  
or any other subject, he wears the reactionary persona like a set of  
bad clothes and invites people to see right through it.  What I  
thought was most interesting was that he went out of his way to name  
both the cut and the album it was from.  I'll bet Zorn gets a huge  
spike of interest from that segment, especially since Colbert's  
audience is probably a relatively progressive set of viewers.
