Stephen Colbert's Book Club Invades the Private Life of J.D. Salinger (Video)

Go away, Syria — you're boring us

The Comedy Central host stepped away from the conflict in Syria Tuesday, because apparently, so is the United States, he said.

The featured author in the second installment of The cOlbert Book Club is J.D. Salinger, who could not be with “The Colbert Report” because either MTV booked him to do the VMAs, or he died in 2010.
