Colbert and Jacoby on Truthiness

This just now. Stephen Colbert mentioned his coinage truthiness tonight when talking to his guest, Susan Jacobi, the author of The Age of Unreason. I was told to pay attention, so I did. And this is what I heard.

Susan Jacoby: Truthiness is to truth what military music is to music.
Stephen Cobert: What, you can march to it?
Susan Jacoby: And you don't have to think.

Yeah. That was a fast response. ...'you can march to it?'... Colbert's the man.
