In 2007, Stephen Colbert changed the political landscape forever with I am America, (and So Can You). That landscape will change even further as the world encounters its long-awaited sequel, America Again: Re-becoming the Greatness We Never Weren't. In this monumental political text, Colbert unveils further wisdom which he has gained from his experiences since the first book was published.
In this insightful, profound, and sometimes scathing expose, Colbert explores why America, the #1 nation at being the best at greatness, perfect though it may be, is broken. He walks the reader through the realities which face our great nation. We no longer manufacture, we owe China more than we are worth, and our supposed leader travels the world apologizing on our behalf. Meanwhile, four star hotels have phones which don't provide a dedicated spa button, proving beyond the shadow of a doubt that this country is going down the wrong path. Addressing topics like the financial crisis, welfare, and the Citizens United ruling, Colbert demonstrates once and for all where America has gone wrong, and how she can once again be as great as she already is.
Secrets from Colbert's many adventures are provided for those who wish to follow in his footsteps. The rationale behind his nearly successful presidential campaign is explained so that aspiring politicians can duplicate his non-winning formula. His experience as a migrant worker provides new insights into the immigration problem. And to top it all off, the entire book is read in Colbert's own, sultry, world-famous voice.
Rev. Sir Doctor Sen. Stephen T. Mos Def Colbert, D.F.A., Heavyweight Champion of the World, Ph.D is the greatest man of all time. While his day job is hosting the greatest news program of all time, he has also found time to serve as a political activist, testified as an expert witness before Congress, mounted a campaign for president, and generally made the world a better place.
Book store nation, in the history of mankind there has never been a greater country than America. You could say we’re the #1 nation at being the best at greatness.
But as perfect as America is in every single way, America is broken! And we can’t exchange it because we’re 236 years past the 30-day return window. Look around—we don’t make anything anymore, we’ve mortgaged our future to China, and the Apologist-in-Chief goes on world tours just to bow before foreign leaders. Worse, the LA Four Seasons Hotel doesn’t even have a dedicated phone button for the spa. You have to dial an extension! Where did we lose our way?!
It’s high time we restored America to the greatness it never lost!
Luckily, America Again will single-bookedly pull this country back from the brink. It features everything from chapters, to page numbers, to fonts. Covering subjects ranging from health care (“I shudder to think where we’d be without the wide variety of prescription drugs to treat our maladies, such as think-shuddering”) to the economy (“Life is giving us lemons, and we’re shipping them to the Chinese to make our lemon-flavored leadonade”) to food (“Feel free to deep fry this book—it’s a rich source of fiber”), Stephen gives America the dose of truth it needs to get back on track.
