Farewell to "Colbert"

The final episode of The Colbert Report aired last night, and lots of guests were on hand to send the faux newsman off, including NJ Senator Cory Booker, President Bill Clinton, and Star Wars creator George Lucas. As the show ends, so does the Colbert character—the conservative blowhard pundit.  Colbert (the real one) will of course be taking over for David Letterman some time in 2015.  We here at Fordham University got a little taste of that in 2012 when Colbert spoke with Timothy Cardinal Dolan about faith.
