The White House Correspondents' Dinner

Stephen Colbert of Comedy Central was so EXCELLENT in his performance at the White House Correspondents' Dinner. It was all billed as comedy, but he said what everyone is thinking. You can see that the correspondents and invited guests were noticeably nervous and uncomfortable. The guests include military generals, Scalia of the US Supreme Court, other govrnment officials, including the supreme idiot/dictator--Bush.

You have to see this! I love it! He really challenged the President/Dictator Bush like no one in the media EVER will. Check it out.

For more details and commentary on the event, click here.

Here is a preview of the article:

Colbert, who spoke in the guise of his talk show character, who ostensibly supports the president strongly, urged the Bush to ignore his low approval ratings, saying they were based on reality, “and reality has a well-known liberal bias.” He attacked those in the press who claim that the shake-up at the White House was merely re-arranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. “This administration is soaring, not sinking,” he said. “If anything, they are re-arranging the deck chairs on the Hindenburg.”Colbert told Bush he could end the problem of protests by retired generals by refusing to let them retire. He compared Bush to Rocky Balboa in the “Rocky” movies, always getting punched in the face—“and Apollo Creed is everything else in the world.”
