Colbert or Coulter?

Alright, here’s a quick quiz I got from this New York Magazine article on Stephen Colbert. See if you can tell which of these statements are by right-wing talking head Ann Coulter and which by political satirist Stephen Colbert:

1. “Even Islamic terrorists don’t hate America like liberals do. They don’t have the energy. If they had that much energy, they’d have indoor plumbing by now.”

2. “There’s nothing wrong with being gay. I have plenty of friends who are going to hell.”

3. “I just think Rosa Parks was overrated. Last time I checked, she got famous for breaking the law.”

4. “Being nice to people is, in fact, one of the incidental tenets of Christianity, as opposed to other religions whose tenets are more along the lines of ‘Kill everyone who doesn’t smell bad and answer to the name Muhammad.’ ”

5. “I believe that everyone has the right to their own religion, be you Hindu, Muslim, or Jewish. I believe there are infinite paths to accepting Jesus Christ as your personal savior.”

6. “[North Korea] is a major threat. I just think it would be fun to nuke them and have it be a warning to the rest of the world.”

7. “Isn’t an agnostic just an atheist without balls?”

Remember, one’s supposed to be a political intellectual, the other a comedian playing a partisan idiot. It’s sad that you can’t really tell the difference.


Coulter: 1, 4, 6
Colbert: 2, 3, 5, 7
