    Because he satirized racism against Asians, basically:

    Yeah, it's idiotic.... He was trying to make a point.

    It goes back to the "What are we going to be outraged about today?" thread.

    People need to get a sense of humor.

    It reminds me of when people got up in arms about the New Yorker cover satirizing the McCain campaign's characterization of Obama as a radical.

    One of the main outrage-pushers is Michelle Malkin.

    A few months ago some group was trying to get Kimmel fired for something a kid said during a segment on his show.

    That "group" was the Chinese government.

    Tommy Craggs weighs in by throwing a growler of gasoline into the flames.


    I enjoyed when he pointed out what a complete tool Dave Zirin is.

    Since when have you needed context to whip people up into a frenzy?

    Another genius checks in:

    Stephen Colbert can try to blow off his "Ching Chong Ding-Dong" skit as a joke all he wants -- former NFL All-Pro Dat Nguyen thinks Colbert NEEDS to apologize, and he's shocked he hasn't yet.

    Ex-Dallas Cowboys star Nguyen says he's not buying the "just for comedy" excuse -- telling us, "Whether you think you're right or wrong, if people are hurt, you should apologize."

    Nguyen -- who is Vietnamese-American -- compared Colbert's comments to Riley Cooper ... the Eagles receiver who screamed the n-word at a concert last year.

    Cooper had to apologize, and Nguyen says Colbert should too because ... "Asian Americans are the same as African American, Hispanic Americans, anyone, we deserve to be respected too."

    If people can't understand satire, they shouldn't watch satire.

    I have no sympathy whatsoever for a guy whose entire schtick is annoying smugness.

    So you're never sympathetic towards Hannity?
