Colbert Interviews Maurice Sendak

Here's a comedy genius interviewing a literary genius.

I want a copy of "I Am A Pole (And So Can You)".

    My two favorite exchanges:

    SENDAK: But Newt Gingrich is an idiot. Of great renown, I’ll give him that.

    COLBERT: He’s a historian, you mean.

    SENDAK: Yes, but there’s something hopelessly so gross and vile about him that it’s hard to take him seriously, so let’s not take him seriously.


    COLBERT: What do you think?

    SENDAK: The sad thing is, I like it.

    COLBERT: Can I get that as a blurb?

    Brilliant stuff, from both men.
