Off with his hair! Stephen Colbert has declared victory in the war in Iraq by pulling a Britney and shaving his head in show of support with U.S. troops.
Last week, the comedic political pundit took his Comedy Central series, The Colbert Report, to the Middle East, for four tapings from the marble hall at Saddam Hussein’s former Al Faw Palace.
“By the power vested in me by basic cable, I officially declare we have won the Iraq war!” the mock pundit joked before a cheering crowd of about 300 U.S. servicemembers who gathered in Iraq on Sunday for the taping.
The Colbert Report — Live From Iraq — will air Monday through Thursday of next week @ 11:30 PM EDT on Comedy Central.
