Academia has fallen in love with Stephen Colbert and The Colbert Report. Here is a great article in the Washington Post's Style Section today.
Thanks to my father for texting me this. He is a HUGE Stephen Colbert fan :-)
Below is a snippet from the article:
"There are dozens of scholarly articles, monographs, treatises and essays about Colbert, as well as books of scholarly articles, monographs and essays. A University of Oklahoma student even earned her doctorate last year by examining him and his “Daily Show” running mate Jon Stewart. It was called “Political Humor and Third-Person Perception.”
Julie and I went to the Rally To Restore Sanity to see Colbert and Stewart live.
