telling minor stories to avoid a major one

Steven Colbert: AP Celebrity of the Year by Barbecue Bros
December 25, 2007, 8:47 pm
Filed under: Colbert, truthiness

Beating out J.K. Rowling, Al Gore, Miley Cyrus and Britney Spears.

“In receiving this award, I am pleased that I was chosen over two great spinners of fantasy — J.K. Rowling and Al Gore. It is truly an honor to be named the Associated Press’ Celebrity of the Year. Best of all, this makes me the official front-runner for next year’s Drug-Fueled Downward Spiral of the year. P.S. Look for my baby bump this spring!”

Plus, he is also coming back on the air (without his writers) on 1/7. Jon Stewart and Colbert released this joint statement:

”We would like to return to work with our writers. If we cannot, we would like to express our ambivalence, but without our writers we are unable to express something as nuanced as ambivalence.”

I would also like to add Live Free or Die Hard to the Others Receiving Votes category.

Oh yeah and most overrated film of the year: 300.
