I am sure that by Monday morning everyone will have heard about or seen Stephen Colbert's extraordinary and hilarious "speech" at the White House Press Corps dinner. Engaging his great talent of irony and black humor, Colbert excoriated Bush, the White House Press Corps, and other Bush Administration officials. Bush was present at the event and neither him nor Laura was smiling at the end. In fact, they more or less huffed out immediately afterwards. You have to hand to Colbert. He had the courage to lambaste Bush right in front of his face. Below are links to the "speech." You will both jump with joy and scream with laughter.
