Speaking Truthiness to Power: Stephen Colbert Nails Bush at White House Correspondents' Dinner

Stephen Colbert rules.
His wicked, wicked, wickedly truthy appearance at the White House Correspondents Dinner had me screaming for mercy, and had his Washington audience gasping at this take-no-prisoners demonstration of the magnitude of Stephen's much-ballyhooed huevos. Not to be missed.

[Update: Peter Daou here on MSM attempt to ignore Colbert into non-existence, creating their own unreality. NY Times coverage by Bumiller failed even to mention the name of Colbert, featured speaker of the night. How's that for the erstwhile paper of record?]

President Bush is a great man! This man should be locked away for even thinking about saying such rotten things about our great leader, let alone daring to speak them! Where were the Secret Service that night?

Tommy Chong says they're all out smoking weed, since you ask.

Welcome, Carrie.

Great stuff. Also saw that Chong quote. Wonderful stuff.

I know, I know NB...he's great.

Very funny.

The suck ups to power were all there and there's an unwritten rule that that symbiotic relationship can't be challenged. Colbert took a flamethrower to it. Hence the silent fear.

Maybe the floodgates will open.
