If you aren’t yet a part of the Colbert Nation, you need to be! Colbert does a great job of lampooning our culture from a Bill O’Reilly-esque perspective. In many ways, his book I Am American (And So Can You)
has the exact opposite goal of Peppermint-Filled Pinatas. My book is about embracing the people Christians “love to hate” whereas Colbert’s goal is help us do a better job at moving backwards as a society. 🙂
Some fun quotes from Stephen Colbert:
“Nature is a far bigger threat to us than we are to it. Nature has bears, twisters, lava, and daddy long legs. What do we got? Styrofoam cups? Nothing!”
“No polar bears were hurt in the making of this segment. They were killed instantly.”
“Eliminating poverty? Who’s going to pay for that? Not the poor. They don’t have any cash.”
“Bad leadership is better than no leadership at all.” – Stephen Colbert to Wesley Clark about President Bush
