Lexia: Undergraduate Journal in Writing, Rhetoric & Technical Communication


In this satirical anthology written for WRTC 314: Writing in the Public Sphere, veteran Lexia author Roddewig pays homage to Stephen Colbert's fictionalized persona from The Colbert Report and his book I Am America (And So Can You!). With brevity and hilarity, Carrying the Torch of Colbert offers a poignant parody of the hot-button issues of gun regulation and Trump's wall.
