From the author of I Am America (And So Can You!), writer Stephen Colbert has done it again with I Am America (And So Can You!) literary masterpiece was released to breathless, sweaty crowds of heroic fans on October 9, 2007 after months of pants-wetting anticipation. I Am America (And So Can You!) sold 19.5 bigwordillion copies within its first hour of release, and soon forced even the liberal factinistas at The New York Times to recognize its book-selling dominance with placement atop their so-called "Best Sellers" list for best-selling books.
But who needs a newspaper to tell you what your gut already knows? Americans around the globe have already proclaimed I Am America (And So Can You!) the greatest critical and commercial success in the history of non-Biblical books (and audiobooks - remember, you don't get inflection in the print format, so you need to buy them both!). However, Stephen will not consider his work anything more than a financial success until everyone who buys it becomes America. The words of I Am America (And So Can You) must cover the Earth, spreading Stephen's book-based plans for world domination.
In factiness, I Am America (And So Can You!) is so good that it received its first mark of distinction before it was even released, becoming the first ever recipient of The Stephen T. Colbert Award For The Literary Excellence. I Am America (And So Can You) is also referred to as the Bible to the Colbert Nation, although not promoting not to follow christianity it does promote Stephen Colbert as a God.
I Am America for the Aurally FixatedEdit
An audiobook version of the book, recorded by Stephen Colbert himself, was released a few days before the print version, for those who prefer to read with their ears. A second audiobook version, read by the wise Diabeetus-stricken sage Wilford Brimley, is scheduled for release in the near future, provided The Diabeetus doesn't take Mr. Brimley too soon.
In order to promote the book, Stephen Colbert has agreed to grace America with even more appearances of Stephen Colbert in public American places, including visits to Good Morning America and NPR's "Fresh Air."
Among the boldest moves in his book-promoting campaign was his agreement to be nailed on The Colbert Report on the night of the book's release. In his interview with Stephen Colbert, Stephen Colbert pulled no punches, questioning his earlier stance on books and reading. During this nailing, Stephen Colbert claimed not to have "written" I Am America (And So Can You), but to have "shouted it into a tape recorder over the Columbus Day weekend."
