Here's the thing is that Matt Lauer, who would appear a stranger to sarcasm/wit/cognizance, can't grasp why politicians would choose to be mocked by appearing on the (critically and publicly acclaimed) Colbert Report:

Second, note that Matt Lauer is kinda stupid. Or a really good actor. Although, as I recall back to my undergraduate journalism classes, there was a wall of duh that separated the broadcast journalists from everybody else.
