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.
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 brilliantly funny book as well as a very clever commentary on America today.
Why buy from World of Books
Our excellent value books literally don't cost the earth
"The sharp-elbowed Mr Colbert will deservedly work his way toward the top of best-seller lists... If "I Am America (And So Can You!)" had nothing but its title, its Colbert cover portrait and 230 blank pages instead of printed ones, it would make a cherished keepsake just the same" * New York Times * "Exactly how Colbert manages to be so funny, and so in character, for the 228 pages of this book is a mystery none of us will solve. But there's great pleasure in trying" * People Magazine * "As on the "Report," the deadpan Colbert here assumes laughably irrational stands on just about everything... His take on the clueless field reporter continues to set the standard for news parody" * Bookpage * "Hilarious... razor-sharp... this jam-packed text is scathing and mean, dark and joyful, brilliant and idiotic, and above all else, wildly, wildly funny" * New York Post * "An unholy hybrid that's part civics, part autobiography, part messianic recruitment tract" * Entertainment Weekly *
