Stephen Colbert: Tonight, I celebrate traditional American values, even more than I usually do. Plus, modern manners, I'll tell the White House Press Corp why it's impolite to point ... out the President's mistakes. Then FOX News Channel's John Kasich will be here to tell me how anyone dares to call himself Bill O'Reilly's replacement. Mr. Stephen Colbert requests the pleasure of your company on the occasion of his latest television program.
