Colbert's losing me

My fondness for The Colbert Report is starting to slip in large ways. There’s a couple of little things… one interview where he seemed to catch himself being too effective against an interviewee whom he was trying to grill in character, and started to back away. But the larger thing is his call for vandalism of various sorts – asking people to add misinformation to Wikipedia, or trying to skew a vote on a bridge in Hungary to get it named after him. He’s slipping from commenting on those who would make the world worse to being one of them.
