Stephen Colbert

Proud American; host, The Colbert Report

You’re in our Top 40 because we like you, but where does a French guy get off telling Americans how screwed up the country is?
I don’t tell them the country is screwed up. I celebrate our country. I don’t criticize, I merely celebrate. I’m holding a one-man parade for the news.

The Colbert Report airs weeknights at 11:30pm on Comedy Central.
