Dear Mr. Colbert,

First I should take a moment to express what a big fan I am of your show “The Colbert Report”. The show’s writing, and your performance, are consistently excellent, and just when I think there can’t possibly be anything you could say or do to surprise me, you manage to do just that.

I will admit that I was saddened when you quit referring to yourself as “Warrior-Poet” in your show’s opening. However, I soon realized that meant that I was free to claim the mantle of America’s Warrior-Poet and have done just that.

I could have written this letter at any point, considering how much I enjoy “The Colbert Report”, but it was during the May 6, 2009 show that I decided that I had a very special thank you note to write you.

Mr. Colbert, thank you for talking about Zimbabwe. Outside of BBC America World News, your show is the only one I’ve seen that addresses the situation with some regularity. Perhaps you do this because as a true American patriot you are touched and moved by the struggle of a country trying to claim the freedoms that we here in the United States enjoy so easily, or it could be you are frustrated that American news agency seem to be ignoring the country altogether, or perhaps it’s just the fact that the name Mugabe is fun to say. Whatever the reason, as someone who can’t seem to get her voice heard with regards to Zimbabwe (form letter from the White House, no response from the State Department), I thank you and applaud you for repeatedly mentioning it to your nationwide audience.

Warm Wishes and With Highest Regards,
Rebecca Elson

The proof is in the pudding!

    Very funny! I watch John Stewart all the time, but I guess I may have to add Colbert…
