Stephen Colbert in Iraq (part 2)

Another fab show from Stephen, with a follow up on his "basic training" film from yesterday. More silly and inspired. The drill sergent deserves an Emmy. This was followed on a long riff on "don't ask - don't tell," which was both pointed and funny.

The best (though not the funniest bit) was his interview with two of the troops - a woman MP and Arab-American translator.Coupled with the "don't ask/don't tell" references made earlier, the unmissable point was how diverse today's army was. It transcended being a comedy show bit.

For even more information, I recommend heading over to the No Fact Zone -- they've got some great content about this trip.

I promise a link to tonight's show tomorrow sometime; as soon as it's available.
