UPS AND DOWNS Annus Colbert-us

At roughly the same time as the story was being proofed, Colbert's boss, Jon Stewart, made an official announcement that seemed entirely unnecessary for a standup comic-turned-fake TV newsman: He and Colbert would not, in fact, be running for office in '08. (Which apparently did wonders for Robin Williams's latest turkey, Man of the Year.)

In honor of Colbert's best week ever, we took a page from Sternbergh's patented playbook, to create The Undulating Curve of Colbert Expectations.
