Synopsis

Congratulations--just by looking at this webpage, you became 25% more patriotic.

From Stephen Colbert, the host of television's highest-rated punditry show The Colbert Report, comes the book to fill the other 23¿ hours of your day. I Am America (And So Can You!) contains all of the opinions that Stephen doesn't have time to shoehorn into his nightly broadcast.

Dictated directly into a microcassette recorder over a three-day weekend, this book contains Stephen's most deeply held knee-jerk beliefs on The American Family, Race, Religion, Sex, Sports, and many more topics, conveniently arranged in chapter form.

Always controversial and outspoken, 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.

I Am America (And So Can You!) showcases Stephen Colbert at his most eloquent and impassioned. He is an unrelenting fighter for the soul of America, and in this book he fights the good fight for the traditional values that have served this country so well for so long.

About Stephen Colbert

See more books from this Author
Stephen Colbert was The Daily Show's longest-running and most diverse correspondent. In addition to his role as Senior Political Correspondent he was one of the hosts of "Even Stephven," a point-counterpoint assault featuring co-correspondent Steve Carell, and the host of "This Week in God," in which he reported on all things theological with the assistance of the "God Machine." His personality, insight and overall rightness could only lead to The Colbert Report, a half-hour nightly platform for him to give his take on the issues of the day, and, more importantly, to tell you why everyone else's take is just plain wrong. The show has been hugely successful.

Stranger theories have been proposed (where is Anita Bryant when you need her?), but no satisfactory argument has been mounted against it, and in all events the critics of Colbert are only those who do not “accept Jesus as my personal editor,” namely “cable channels, the internet blogs, and the H...

The liberal media, Hollywood, heirloom tomatoes and, yes, even baby carrots, which he says “are trying to turn me gay.” That’s the Truth as Colbert sees it, and this audio, as well-produced as an episode of The Colbert Report , is the perfect vehicle for his off-the-cuff (and off-the-wall) humor.

Examiner

I don’t know exactly what I was expecting since the book was modeled after Jon Stewart’s ‘America (The Book)’ but it isn’t a book that you can read in an hour or two even though you think that you can – as in I think I can be America too!

Or chapter 4, ''Religion,'' in which ''Stephen'' exhorts all of us — Jews, gentiles, atheists, and Scientologists — to jump on the ''Jesus Train.'' The contortions, twists, and sidesteps the deeply closeted ideologue takes to squeak through the fantastic seventh chapter (''Homosexuals'') could...
