Colbert: Conservative, or Not?

Stephen Colbert "defends" Glenn Beck.  Kinda, sorta.

In the bit linked above, reader Nick Browning points out that Colbert appears somewhat more transparent.   Colbert is "effectively disguised" as a conservative, some charge.  Studies suggest Colbert nudges people to the right as he -- a liberal -- plays a conservative TV blowhard (last two words, a redundancy, I admit).  Or maybe Colbert is a conservative playing a liberal who plays a conservative.  Yes, you can go crazy this way.

No, the "defense" of Beck above makes it clear where Colbert stands -- for those who were confused.
