Last night I recorded The Colbert Report on my DVR and watched it this morning. Per usual he was a riot.
Colbert is currently pushing his book I AM AMERICA (AND SO CAN YOU) very hard. He interviewed himself regarding the book on this show. He complained that he has video evidence that the communists at Powell's Books in Portland are already discounting the price on the book.
In political related material he supported Obama's decision not to wear an American flag pin on his lapel. If Obama took off his coat you would not know what country he supported. In response, Colbert projected a photo which shows that he (Colbert) has an American flag nipple-ring, which removes all doubt.
Colbert also reported that Republican presidential candidates are avoiding George W. Bush like the plague. This is primarily because the plague has a higher approval rating!
Regarding Bush's status as a lame duck President Colbert said that he was lamer than Mallard Fillmore.
In this period of such serious stuff going on in our country, I think it helps to laugh at ourselves so we don't cry.
