      • Stephen: Tonight: Glenn Beck embarks on a new crusade. This is your last warning, windmills. Then: Is the internet killing the newspaper industry? To find out, I will check Google News. And my guest David Plotz wrote a book about reading every word in the Bible. What a brown noser. Why don't you just ask God for extra homework. I thought March was supposed to out like a lamb. Where's my mint jelly? This is the Colbert Report.

      • Stephen: We've been in the grip of a national emergency for months now, and it shows no sign of ending folks. I'm talking of course about the Obama's endless search for a dog, and now this crisis has reached a head. According to the front page of the USA Today's Life section, there are two new children's books out on the subject. That's right, it was quicker to write two books about getting the dog then it was to get the dog. Now the books here are First Dog up there and Which Puppy? Now you know that this book is politically correct because one of the puppies is a turtle. Well, this epic quest for a canine has inspired me to write my own children's book: You Spent 10 Trillion Dollars in a Day: Just Buy a Goddamn Dog Already!
