Colbert: Census is Uncle Sam's OCD


Stephen Colbert has some fun with Census paranoia:


This year’s Census strikes me as an odd — and as far as federal inquiries go, relatively benign — place to draw a line in the sand against the government. Census paranoia is nothing new, of course, but this decennial survey has the bad luck of falling in a year of lingering unemployment, economic troubles and widespread distrust of the government. At risk of playing amateur psychologist, it seems like a lot of people are displacing their anger onto something that’s really not that big of a deal.
