question of the day: Who could possibly believe that Stephen Colbert is a real conservative?

It seems hard to believe, but some people just don’t get satire. At all:

Comedy Central’s Stephen Colbert has become the subject of an academic survey conducted at Ohio State University titled “The Irony of Satire: Political Ideology and the Motivation to See What You Want to See in The Colbert Report.” The survey, conducted among 332 undergraduates, concluded that many conservatives believe that Colbert is on their side. As reported by today’s (Wednesday) Chicago Tribune, the researchers observed that “conservative viewers often don’t comprehend Colbert’s “deadpan satire” and process his messages “as being conservative, Republican, and disliking liberals.”

The mind boggles. Who could possibly believe that Stephen Colbert is a real conservative?
