Colbert visits the troops

The New York Times is reporting Stephen Colbert is taping his show this week before the troops in Iraq. The shows will be aired starting June 8 (tomorrow). He's been talking about doing this for some time now. This ought to be an amazing set of shows

This guy is amazing -- in addition to this trip, Colbert sponsors a site called which raises money for school supplies for children of soldiers, and uses the proceeds for his WristStrong bracelets (from when he broke his wrist during the show's warmup) to help injured veterans.

Don't ever confuse the man with the character he plays.

Thanks and a hat tip to the No Fact Zone for alerting me to this.
