Kos on Colbert

In 2004 bloggers made national headlines by getting passes to cover both the Republican and Democratic conventions. Last night, after the recent release of his book, Crashing the Gate, Kos appeared on The Colbert Report [VIDEO]. It came just after Kos, and other bloggers, made a cameo in the Onion.

Colbert took the blogger to task for not just leaving those in power damn well alone.

But, according to John Amato, Kos got off a good one: "We have found that the Republicans are really good at telling you when you can be born, they're good at telling you when you can die, but not very good at the stuff in between." (C&L)
