Anybody see him? Very ballsy to broadcast a USO show to his primary audience back home. As a junior enlisted soldier with a BS who spent many a night enjoying "The Daily Show" back in college, I think it's awesome. Love his humor, and love that he was able to joke about "Don't ask, don't tell" and sandstorms and get laughs for both.

Daily Show/Colbert report is US's WMD in Soft Power. I was impressed by how many US presidents showed up during his last few shows. (Obama teleprompted in during first Iraq show)

I enjoyed watching the shows from Iraq. The troops seemed to get into it as well.

Colbert is an entertainer, I really think he's had a USO show or two under his belt before this one... I have no citations, other than my faulty memory...

haw, how many people get the honor of having their head shaved by a four star?

edit: talk about alliteration.
