    "Truthiness intact"

    Just another stop on his way to world domination. Mr. Colbert at his best.

    "5 stars for the smart guy!"

    i was glad to be able to get this at Audible, as Colbert's remarks had been so controversial. Well, he was his usual amazing, inciteful, smart self ... there are no ggod guys or bad guys at the Press Corps dinner, and his scathing humor was well balanced. Maybe over their heads?

    "Colbert Pulls No Punches"

    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.

    "Audible should NOT sell this"
    Would you try another book from Stephen Colbert and/or the narrator?

    Yes


    What was most disappointing about Stephen Colbert’s story?

    You need to be able to see in order to appreciate this performance


    What about the narrator’s performance did you like?

    Delivery, content


    What character would you cut from Stephen Colbert?

    N/a


    Any additional comments?

    Basically Audible should not sell this clip. You need to be able to see in order to appreciate it fully. And I suppose Stephen shouldn't give rights to sell it either. I normally love everything that he touches, but this unfortunately falls flat since you can't see it. Please remove from Audible!

    "Ah Truthiness"

    The humor that viewers of Comedy Central have become well acquainted with is on display though you do miss seeing the faces. The idea of Stephen Colbert making fun of Dick Cheaney while he sits stonefaced a few feet away. His sharp brand of irreverent humor turned on the nabobs of Washington is fun. Excellent buy.

    "Inteligent, funny and engaging - like Cobert"
    What did you love best about Stephen Colbert?

    His performance at the White House is hilarious.


    What other book might you compare Stephen Colbert to and why?

    I like his "I am America and so can you" because the jokes are great.


    Have you listened to any of the narrator’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Cobert's performance is always great.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When he says that the President (Bush) governs by the gut and that reality has a known liberal bias.

    Story
    "Colbert's speech-cutting and spot-on"
    Would you listen to Stephen Colbert again? Why?

    Yes. His O'Reilly-type buffoon character shows up Fox News and Right-wing political actors.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Stephen Colbert?

    When he talked about knowing things in his gut.


    What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    It's not really a narration. It's just a recording of a speech.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. Numerous times.

    "I expected funnier"

    The recording was good and the jokes were right on target, but I expected more.

    "Hilarious"

    and unbelievably bold. Worth it just for what he says about Bush.
