This is satire in top form. Faux-conservative Colbert, praises President George W. Bush with knee-slapping, back-handed compliments. He speaks truthiness to power; his jokes are funny and also add social commentary. A good snapshot of Stephen Colbert's fake punditry.
I love David Sedaris, I have several of his books and I love his wry, dry sense of humor. I always enjoy hearing him read and I think, in this case, he seemed to be enjoying himself. I thought it was too short and not really price appropriate. But I laughed and enjoyed what was there.
