There's a war brewing between The Colbert Nation and The Canadian Nation, also sometimes known as Canada. And it's a struggle over one of the most important issues facing our generation: Speedskating.
But what can you do to help in the fight against Canada? For starters, you can donate to the US Speedskating team. And after that you can download and sign your name to this thoughtful and impassioned letter to Canada (link opens PDF).
Send your letter of protest to:
The Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympics
#400 – 3585 Graveley Street
Let them know we're done being oppressed by their sticky, maple-syrup-stained hands.
If you're not up to speed on all this, videos from the bloody back-and-forth can be found after the jump, and you can see an image of the despicable antics of some Canadians here.
The Colbert Report airs Monday through Thursday at 11:30pm / 10:30c.
