Colbert’s reaction to the shooting in Tucson.

Via on Jan 11, 2011

Vintage Colbert.

Surprising yet obviously apt gravity followed by a send-up of himself—and, simultaneously, the media and political establishment. Less off-the-cuff and emotional than Jon Stewart’s reaction to Tucson, yet more succinct and biting.

…All of us are shocked and saddened by the senseless attack in Tucson this weekend, which killed six people and wounded fourteen others, including Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. While I’ve never met Representative Giffords, we have tussled in the media, and her husband Mark is the astronaut that taught me how to land the Space Shuttle. To the Congresswoman, her husband, and the families and friends of all the victims of this horrible attack, we at the Report send our thoughts and prayers. We may never know what motivated this clearly unbalanced individual, but what we do know is that now is not the time to lay blame or politicize this tragedy.
