Stephen Colbert, Amer-i-can make you laugh

StephencolbertStephen Colbert never fails to make me laugh.

I don’t know how he pulls off his righteous indignation schtick without a wink but I’m glad he can. His angry-American persona is so ingrained that we can easily read a newspaper column by him (Colbert, in character, subbed this past Sunday for Maureen Dowd of the New York Times) and hear it being delivered in his “TV’s Stephen Colbert” voice.

Here’s a pearl from his “I Am an Op-Ed Columnist (And So Can You!) offering to the axis of evil, the New York Times, which served as great product placement for his new tome, “I Am America (And So Can You!).

Our nation is at a Fork in the Road. Some say we should go Left; some say go Right. I say, “Doesn’t this thing have a reverse gear?” Let’s back this country up to a time before there were forks in the road — or even roads. Or forks, for that matter. I want to return to a simpler America where we ate our meat off the end of a sharpened stick.
