Rachel Maddow paid a visit to the Colbert Report this week much to the delight of host Stephen Colbert, who wasted little time in telling her that his audience was way too excited to see her. “Your show is interesting to me”, he said, “because you have said that you try to go beyond the surface.” He sighed. “Why would you want to do that? The surface is the nice shiny part.”
