Stephen Colbert by JennHolton Stephen Colbert by JennHolton
Yes, that is the Colbert portrait they had hanging in the National Portrait Gallery here in DC. Yes, I am holding his book.

There was a huge line to see this thing—all of us huddled around the water fountains they hung it above and there were a few bewildered bathroom patrons walking past us as we gawked at the canvas printed Photoshop genius.

Then I ran around the corner and gaped at the Norman Rockwell painting of Richard Nixon. Because it was a freaking NORMAN ROCKWELL PAINTING.

Folks, if you've never been to the National Portait Gallery, I suggest you take an entire day off to go look around. Because it will take about that long to go through half of the gallery. I have been there about five times since I finally figured out where it was and I've yet to walk through the whole place. But I did find the basement with all the plexiglass encased "test" busts from various sculptors.

I love hanging out at the Portrait Gallery. I'm spending, like, the whole week after graduation walking through that place.
