Colbert Does Bush

Sunday, April 30, 2006

Last night C-Span televised the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner featuring Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert as the lead roaster.

Liberals are furious the media isn't making a bigger deal of the skewering, claiming Colbert was brilliant and "biting," and that the pro-Bush press (an oxymoron if I've ever heard one) refused to laugh because they were afraid to upset our Great Leader.

Or maybe Colbert just wasn't that funny. Admittedly I missed the show because I have better things to do on Saturday nights, but The Huffington Post is deep in conspiracy theories and both Atrios and Kouskous give Colbert two thumbs up for hammering the president.

Conservatives on the other hand believe he bombed. I don’t know who to believe, but if Colbert was anything like his pal Jon Stewart doing the Oscars then there’s a reason why you didn’t hear much laughter.
