This back-to-back interviewing on Thursday night of Stephen Colbert (who plays a kinda Bill O’Reilly) by Bill O’Reilly on his show, followed by Bill O’Reilly (who is really Bill O’Reilly) being interviewed by Stephen Colbert on his show, is truly an Escher-ian moment in navel-gazing, post-modern media surrealism.
I know I shouldn’t watch, but I’m going to anyway. Quote of the day on the affair goes to the otherwise irritating Bill O:
“I think he’s going to stay in the role, in full Colbert regalia. It’ll be a Borat situation.”
