Truthiness Comes to Iraq

One of our favorites, Stephen Colbert, is in Iraq on a four-day visit for "The Colbert Report." On his first day, on President Obama's "orders," Colbert got a military-style haircut from Gen. Ray Odierno (whom Colbert compared to Shrek) while wearing a business suit and tie tailored from camoflage. The audience cheered. It's the first time that taped shows will be aired so quickly in the U.S.: Sunday's taping will be aired tonight on Comedy Central. Well done.

Colbert is also known for his generous fundraising for military families and veterans, raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for support organizations.
