Stephen Colbert Is Mad at John Heilemann For Not Writing About Him in Game Change


There’s a new book out about the 2008 election called Game Change. Maybe you’ve heard of it? One of its authors, New York’s very own John Heilemann, appeared on The Colbert Report last night to talk about it. Media-hater that he is, Colbert questioned Heilemann on the book’s accuracy and the reliability of his sources. But as is always the case with megalomaniacs like Colbert, he soon made it about himself, complaining that Heilemann and co-author Mark Halperin didn’t talk to him about his own presidential campaign.

Colbert also revealed a scoop of his own in his opening: John Heilemann was once involved in a torrid love triangle will Wolf Blitzer and Helen Thomas!
