Stephen Colbert Arrives In Vancouver, Canada Remains Sovereign Nation (For Now)

Here is a lede that stands so beautifully on its own that it requires no further introduction:

↵

The totally serious darling of America's conservative movement has alternately feuded with and become a major sponsor of American Olympians, learned to skate and curl himself, and is now on the ground in what he's probably referring to as "Canuckistan." And the fun has just begun -- Shani Davis just got himself a gold medal, and it's only a matter of time before the cameras capture Colbert bolting out of the stands for a victory lap of his own. Stay tuned.
