Gaiman defends controversial child-raising techniques on The Colbert Report

Neil Gaiman, writer of Sandman and The Graveyard Book, will appear on The Colbert Report tonight.

As you can see in the video below, the popular conservative talk show host called Gaiman out on his latest book, where a young orphan escapes his family’s killer by wandering into a graveyard:

The program starts at 11:30 p.m. Eastern on Comedy Central.



“the popular conservative talk show host”

Is someone not in on the joke?

I’m not sure what’s so funny about a kid being raised in a graveyard after his parents are killed — it all reeks of the kind of satanism Tipper Gore fought Twisted Sister over back during her 1980s crusades, and we know who won that one — but I’m pretty sure Colbert will nail Gaiman to the wall this time around.

I see..

(guess the someone was me)

Colbert’s not a conservative; he’s parodying what a liberal thinks a conservative is. Which is why he’s not funny anymore…
