From the host of television's comedy-punditry show The Colbert Report, comes the book to fill the other 23 hours of your day. This book contains all of the opinions that Stephen doesn't have time to shoehorn into his nightly broadcast, his most deeply held knee-jerk beliefs on The American Family, Race, Religion, Sex, Sports, and many more topics, conveniently arranged in chapter form. Stephen addresses why Hollywood is destroying America by inches, why evolution is a fraud, and why the elderly should be harnessed to millstones. You may not agree with everything Stephen says, but at the very least, you'll understand that your differing opinion is wrong.--From publisher description.

Colbert's show, in book form

Colbert's humor is so brilliant. I couldn't read the book without hearing his voice in my head. (So either it was that good, or I'm mildly schizophrenic now.)

If you've ever watched his show, the book is more of the same (although with fewer (though not none) grizzly bears).

Classic Colbert

I Am America does for books what [b:1303117|The Colbert Report] does for television, perfectly satirizing the genre of political writing.

I AM AMERICA (AND SO CAN YOU!) by Stephen Colbert

Cute, but not nearly up to the standard of Al Franken's similar non-book from last year.
