America was thoughtlessly holding its presidential campaign during the show's seven-year anniversary. (1:58)

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

>> Stephen: OH, HI THERE.

I WAS JUST WAITING FOR THE CAMERA TO COME BACK ON AND GIVE MY LIFE MEANING.

LAST MONTH, WE CELEBRATED THE SEVENTH ANNIVERSARY OF THE COLBERT REPORT.

I DIDN'T MENTION IT AT THE TIME, BECAUSE AMERICA WAS THOUGHTLESSLY HING ITS PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN DURING MY

SPECIAL DAY.

YOU KNOW, I'VE BEEN THINKING ABOUT THE LAST SEVEN YEARS-- 1,118 SHOWS-- AND ASKING, WHAT

WERE OUR TRIUMPHS?

WHAT WERE OUR FAILURES?

WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME I SLEPT?

( LAUGHTER ) OF COURSE, TRADITIONALLY THE SEVENTH ANNIVERSARY GIFT IS WOOL, SEE I WAS GOING TO GET YOU SHEEP.

THEN I THOUGHT, NO, THAT'S STUPID.

I'VE GOT A BETTER PRESENT.

I PRESENT THE COLBERT REPORT 7th ANNIVERSARY PORTRAIT.

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ).

IT'S LIKE THE PICTURE OF "DORRIAN GRAY" ONLY THIS THIS CASE, WHILE THE PAINTING REMAINS

YOUNG AND VIBRANT.

>> WITHER TO A FORM OF MYSELF.

WE HAVE AN EXTRA PEABODY ON THE PANT EXPEL I'M HOLDING MY NEW BOOK, "AMERICA AGAIN, REBOTTOM

BECOMING THE GREATNESS WE NEVER WEREN'T." THIS PAINTING, THIS ENTIRE SHOW WOULD NOT BE POSSIBLE WITHOUT

YOU, THE COLBERT NATION.

IN MANY WASES THIS ISN'T JUST A PORTRAIT OF ME.

IT'S A PORTRAIT OF YOU IN THE FORM OF ME.

( LAUGHTER ) AND I HAVE TO SAY, YOU LOOK GREAT.

( LAUGHTER ) THANKS FOR SEVEN YEARS.

I, FOR ONE, CANNOT WAIT TO SEE WHAT NUMBER COMES NEXT.

GOOD NIGHT, EVERYBODY, AND HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
