about this item
Following the best-selling footsteps of Jon Stewart's AMERICA (THE BOOK) comes Stephen Colbert's absurdly patriotic and intentionally wrongheaded ode to America. He tackles the big topics plaguing our nation today: the dangers of Mother Nature, the ways you might become gay, the utter fraudulence of evolution and atheism, and those ridiculous things called books. Boldly ignoring truth and the oppression of the "fact-a-nistas," Colbert goes with his gut and finds the "truthiness" of the issues. Filled with lots of splendidly useless charts, figures, and illustrations. As always, his jokes are hilarious, but Colbert's parody taps into the fiercely stupid reality of modern American politics and culture.
I AM AMERICA (AND SO CAN YOU!) is Stephen Colbert's attempt to wedge his brain between hardback covers. In plain conversational language, not to mention the occasional grunt and/or whistle, Stephen explains his take on the most pressing concerns of our culture: Faith, Family, Politics...Hygiene.
