D.C. Helps Stephen Colbert Say Goodbye
Citizens of #ThisTown were among the pop culture illuminati sending off faux conservative blowhard Stephen Colbert on the final episode of “The Colbert Report,” all to a resounding singalong of “We’ll Meet Again.”
Along with longtime collaborator Jon Stewart and the likes of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Jeff Tweedy, Cookie Monster and the dragon Smaug from “The Hobbit,” the chorus of well-wishers included:
Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J.
Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo.
Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton, D-D.C.
Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger and ex-Gov. Mike Huckabee
Anti-tax crusader Grover Norquist
Tonight is the last Colbert Report. Just left the live to tape taping of a great show celebrating a wonderful 9 year run. 11:30 EST.
