Many thanks to commenter Peter, who posted a comment to my Krampus post with a link to Stephen Colbert's segment on...Krampus!

That woman in the 'appreciation' clip looked like a 10 years older version of Sarah Palin.

I think there are quite a lot of inside references to Germany on Colbert. I can't remember exactly, but I think you posted some of them as well.
I am sure one of his writers has a connection to the country. I think if you research into it you could prove a German jokes cluster in the Colbert report.

I was surprised by his pretty good German, too. Note that they could have used a recording, since you don't see Krampus' lips move. Or is that 'lips'.
As for why Colbert featured Krampus -- isn't it obvious? He reads German Joys!

yeah, he's speaking very good German. I mean somebody of Colbert staff must have been informed about that austrian tradition. It is not really well known in Germany as well.
