Stephen Colbert, 'arch conservative': The comic actor-writer's character is a man of the right, and the comic-actor loves playing him. (Rebecca Ascher-Walsh, June 1, 2009, LA Times)

To use a word coined by Stephen Colbert, the writer and actor, there's a certain "truthiness" about Stephen Colbert, the character and host of Comedy Central's " The Colbert Report." Indeed, Colbert the character, a right-wing blowhard on a one-man mission to reeducate the ignorant, is convincing enough that a recent Ohio State University study found that a majority of conservatives polled believed Colbert the man was one of them.

The irony couldn't please him more.

Humor allows people to reveal their true selves.
