Colbert: ‘Let’s fix Palestine’

Israel/Palestine

(Hat tip Karen Platt)

Why are we posting this inspired riff from Stephen Colbert, mocking Brad Paisley’s clumsy/stupid racism in a song called “Accidental Racist”?

Because at the end of the bit, Colbert sings a country-homophobic song and is joined on stage by Alan Cumming, a gay artist, in duet.

And how does it all end? Colbert sings:

Now that gay is fine

Let’s fix Palestine.

To which Cumming responds:

Two state solution, baby.

Don’t know about the solution. But the sketch speaks to the purpose of our site. This issue is the urgent moral question of our time.
