According to an interview Stephen Colbert gave on 60 minutes, he defined it this way:
"Truthiness is what you want the facts to be, as opposed to what the facts are. What feels like the right answer, as opposed to what reality will support."
On "The Word" Colbert's example of Truthiness was: If you think about The War in Iraq, maybe there a few missing pieces to the rationale for war, but doesn’t taking Saddam out "feel" like the right thing?
