Little-known radio guy mad at Stephen Colbert



Talk-radio host Cenk Uygur, who runs Air America’s The Young Turks, is raising a ruckus, saying Stephen Colbert stole a joke from his show.

Uygur has posted a YouTube video showing “proof” that Colbert swiped a joke comparing Republican presidential candidates discussing honor to a bunch of Klingons from Star Trek (see it below).

Uygur’s shtick ran Sept. 7, while Colbert presented a similar item on Sept. 11's episode of The Colbert Report.

“Who else would come up with this joke on their own?” Cenk asks rhetorically on the video. Gee, maybe anybody who’s ever seen an episode of Star Trek, ever.

Beware a few dirty words, please:
