One week on and Stephen Colbert is no less a god and the US media and right wingers are no less a pack of weenies. So I have decided to make it official.
I am convening the international inter-faith non-demoninational Church of Colbert.
He is the god of all who want to stand up to bullies and the patron saint of bravery. You don't have to renounce any other faith to join the Church of Colbert just take the daily challenge:
Did I do anything today that measures up to facing down the president of the United States and calling him a lying sack of shit to his face?
I know for myself the odds are the answer will always be no. But keep trying. Maybe you can do better.
