Classic Video: Stephen Colbert's Speech at the 2006 White House Correspondents' Dinner

(Courtesy of HungerTruth who reminded me of Stephen Colbert's classic 2006 speech at the White House Correspondents' Dinner in which he clearly reminds of us all of Bush's accomplishments. Ah, it is so funny it hurts, sadly, or perhaps appropriately, it is only the jester that speaks truth to power. A good reminder during the RNC Convention!)

Pt. 1

(This second part is priceless as Colbert moves to satirizing the passivity and conformity of the gathered White House Correspondents, the generals, and various politicos in attendance.)

Pt. 2

(Nothing like watching a gathering of self important people squirm as they attempt to figure out whether they are truly being insulted or if it is all in good fun ;)

Pt. 3
