Celebrity of the year!

Stephen Colbert has just been named Celebrity of the Year by the Associated Press. We've missed him during the writers' strike, so it's exciting to hear that he got this honor, and he emailed the AP to tell them this:
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!
He was chosen because of his influence on pop culture this year.

I can't wait until he checks in and out of rehab!

By the way, he'll be back on air without writers on January 7th. I'm personally feeling ambivalent about it. I'm a writer, so I'm a little more militant about the strike than others.
