Stephen Colbert Shocked That Soldiers Prefer Food And Soap Over Bill O’Reilly’s Book

On Thursday’s edition of the Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert was shocked that troops in Afghanistan might not be that excited to be recieving shipments of Bill O’Reilly‘s book as opposed to survival supplies like food and soap. “Soldier, there are plenty of ways Papa Bear’s books can be useful on the front line. You can use them as sandbags, or as armor for a humvee, or you know, you guys always need toilet paper. I am sure Bill would be honored.”

Colbert conducted his own Pinheads and Patriots segment, calling out a soldier that burned Bill O’Reilly’s book. “How dare you, sir?” exclaimed Colbert. “You sit there thousands of miles from the front lines of punditry, lobbing your criticisms from the safety of your forward operating base, attacking a hero who gets up every day, puts on this uniform, and heads into basic cable hell all out of love of country and a lucrative broadcasting contract!”
