Stephen Colbert: White House Correspondents Dinner

Stephen Colbert skewers the president, his cabinet, and the Washington lackeys (including the Washington press). I heard this is getting no play on mainstream TV (I don't have TV, so I have no idea). Interesting the effect comedy has on people.

yah i saw this a few days ago. it's absolutely amazing. all i can figure is he had a shot and decided to take it. i'm wondering what happened to the person(s) who hired him for the job too.

Good question--you notice that the incoming president of Washington Correspondents seemed very uncomfortable... probably not the way he wanted to set off his term ;)
