January 18, 2011 - Cornel West

In this episode, more calls for education reform. I say we make our kids Chinese so they're smarter. Then, are Americans becoming more lazy, or are couches getting more comfortable? And my guest, Princeton professor Cornel West, has written a book called "Hope on a Tightrope." I assume it's about President Obama quitting to join the circus. Dick Cheney may need a new heart. I say we waterboard the Wizard of Oz. This is The Colbert Report.
