I Am America (And So Can You)

200px-I_Am_America_(And_So_Can_You!) A few months back I finished reading Stephen Colbert’s I Am America (And So Can You).  From Wikipedia (link):

I Am America (And So Can You!) is described as being a "pure extension" of The Colbert Report, delving into the views of Colbert's "well-intentioned, poorly informed high status idiot" character on what he considers to be the most pressing issues facing America. The book draws some influence from the literary endeavors of the character's pundit models, such as Bill O'Reilly's The O'Reilly Factor (2000) and Sean Hannity's Deliver Us From Evil (2004), which Colbert says he forced himself to read as a reference.

I love The Colbert Report, so I enjoyed the book too.  I didn’t like the red margin notes because it was too stressful to stay on the look-out for them and make sure I read them in context.  I took the book with me on my trip to Germany last January (though I ended up not reading any of it on that trip) and remember noticing someone else (probably an American) reading it in the (Amsterdam?) airport.  As I got up to board the plane, I showed him that I had my copy with me, and we shared a moment of solidarity.
