After 24 hours and some 11,000 votes — by a long shot Gawker's most popular poll ever — the answer is clear: Stephen Colbert's White House Correspondents' Dinner performance was one of the most patriotic acts you've witnessed of any individual.

Naturally, that 75 percent margin of victory proves — proves, damn it — Colbert's patriotic genius. No chance of a selection bias among Gawker readers. No chance at all.
