colbert conservatives

I'm a little shocked that any conservatives watched Colbert. But the ones that do are not very bright.

There was no significant difference between the groups in thinking Colbert was funny, but conservatives were more likely to report that Colbert only pretends to be joking and genuinely meant what he said while liberals were more likely to report that Colbert used satire and was not serious when offering political statements. Conservatism also significantly predicted perceptions that Colbert disliked liberalism
I didn't realize there was a sarcasm gene. I guess not everyone has it.
