My goodness. I'm watching/listening to the White House Correspondent's Dinner on CSPAN online, and GOOD LORD Stephen Colbert is on FIRE! The nervous laughter in the room is unbelievable. He's being pointed and critical and completely biting. He's saying all sorts of things that need to be said, both regarding the Bush Administration and the complacent reporting of the last few years. He's saying what every liberal has been DYING to say to someone in power. It's unbelievable. These things are usually good-natured ribbing, like some sort of Dean Martin roast from the 70's. But Colbert is actually saying things that are too based in truth to be funny to the audience.
He is king. Long live Stephen Colbert!
