    I noticed this has yet to be posted. If you're in the dark, Stephen Colbert spoke at the white house correspondents' dinner - and what a speech it was!

    Basically he goes on to tell the truth about the bush administration, bush himself, and the media - with bush seated a few metres away.

    "STEPHEN COLBERT ROASTS GEORGE W. BUSH - WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENTS' DINNER"


    Amazingly this story failed to reach the news, with the new york times making no reference to Colbert's speech at all (Noam Chomsky would not be surprised). Thus it were reliant on the internet to spread. (source)

    It was merely a foot note in the papers I read, most likely because

    The Washington Post, the Associated Press and Reuters all provided scant coverage of Colbert’s appearance.
    Hence I only caught this last night by word of mouth, off a blog.

    The leading media outlets were apparently “not amused” either by Colbert’s performance. Remarkably, Elizabeth Bumiller of the New York Times, in her account of the dinner, failed to mention Colbert’s name! She recounts in some detail the appearance of Steve Bridges, a Bush impersonator, who collaborated with Bush in a skit. Bumiller diligently reports about the preparations for the Bridges-Bush act (“Last Friday was the dress rehearsal with Mr. Bridges in the White House family theater. Mr. Bartlett and Joshua B. Bolten, the new White House chief of staff, attended, but many other senior aides were kept out to keep it secret. Mr. Bush and Mr. Bridges did two straight run-throughs”), but never makes a single reference to Colbert’s 20-minute monologue, in which the White House Press corps, of which Bumiller is a member, came under attack for its cowardice.

    i watched tucker carlson do a report about colbert's routine. carlson claimed that colbert "bombed" at the dinner, saying that he himself was there and it just plain wasn't funny.

    after watching the online videos however, i thought it was pretty damn great. i heard about as much laughter as i would expect at a pasty, stale washington dinner.

    i really got a kick out of the NSA wiretaps-speak into your table number part.

    The Colbert Report and The Daily Show are my two favourite shows on TV right now. With all the crap going in the world right now, its good to see someone having a laugh about it.
