Stephen Colbert is one good sport. On Sunday the comedian taped his hit show The Colbert Report from Camp Victory in Baghdad. During the taping, General Raymond Odierno received a video taped order from President Barack Obama, telling him to shave Stephen Colbert's head. Colbert, dressed in a camouflage suit and tie then received a haircut – a buzz cut to be exact – from Gen Odierno.
Colbert is taping four shows in Iraq that will air tonight through Thursday. Some highlights from the shows include:
- Colbert announcing that we must "officially declare we won the Iraq war" since no one is talking about it
- Telling a soldier who earned a college degree while serving that he is the only 2009 graduate with a job
- An appearance from John McCain, who reminds the soldiers to clean their muskets
