Kind of a letdown. Colby was laying the irony on with a trowel and O’R didn’t offer so much as a courtesy laugh. Both sides seemed to take it in the spirit of good fun, though, which was refreshing.
O’Reilly’s on Colbert’s show tonight at 11:30 on Comedy Central. We’ll have the clip right here as an update a little after midnight.
Update: Not much better. I’m surprised Colby didn’t invoke Olbermann since O’R refuses to so much as utter his name. That would have been a brilliantly tense moment; as it is, he stuck to confronting Bill with photoshops of him as a San Francisco leather fetishist. Oh well.
