Stephen Colbert announced last night that he will be taking his show on the road, broadcasting from the Persian Gulf. Where you ask? He's not allowed to tell us, but "there will be sand and people that wish we would leave." When? He can't tell us that either, but it will be at some point in the "near or distant future or past."
Colbert answered the challenge of the members of the 153rd Regiment who asked him to "come on over."
As he told the Stars and Stripes military blog:
"I'm hoping they're just going to blindfold me, fly the plane around in the air for 12 hours and drop me in New Mexico and tell me it's the Persian Gulf, because I wouldn't know the difference."
