Colbert in Iraq

June 8, 2009

Apparently, this sentence is true: “It was Sunday night in Baghdad, and President Obama was ordering Gen. Ray Odierno, the commander of the American troops here, to shave Stephen Colbert’s head.”

That’s right. The President of the United States ordered an American military general to give a haircut to an ironic, satirical comedian in front of gathered troops. The scene can be viewed this week as the Comedy Central comedian films his show in Iraq. The sentence, and the full story from which it was taken, can be read here at the New York Times.

    When he gets back, he could wear that suit and throw out the first pitch at a San Diego Padres game.
