    An economist looks at what works in the real world and wonders if it works in theory…

    Economics: the painful elaboration of the obvious.

    Help me out people.

    Is Colbert’s “nativity” set some sort of calculated subtle insult, or the height of trendy art? I’m too far removed from the cultural elite to hazard an imformed opinion.

    p.s. Birth order DOES matter. But, so does name spelling — Charles, Chuck, and Charley are three very different people.

    Jim. colbert is a Liberal who dies his show neo-con blackface. So for the Nativity scene, think of O’Reilly’s “War on christmas”. Colbert’s whole show is pretty much a send-up of O’Reilly only with Liberal/Progressive guests that Colbert lovingly skewers.
