Description

Stephen Colbert was "The Daily Show's" longest-running and most memorable correspondent. His right-wing, super-patriotic persona, his insight and general rightness led to "The Colbert Report", a half-hour TV platform for his views on the issues of the day and, more importantly, why everyone else's views are just plain wrong. "I Am America (And So Can You!)" features Stephen's most deeply held knee-jerk beliefs on everything from The Family to Race and Immigration and provides the ultimate satirical guide to the glorious marvel that is American Life. He bravely takes on the forces aligned to destroy America - whether they be terrorists, environmentalists, or brand-name breakfast cereals - and tackles difficult issues like religion, sexuality, and nature ('I've never trusted the sea. What's it hiding under there?') With hilarious illustrations and charts ('Things That Are Trying to Turn Me Gay', 'Sports to Ignore' and many more) and a complete transcript of Colbert's infamous speech at the 2006 White House Correspondents' Dinner, this is a brilliant read as well as a very clever commentary on America today.show more
