I must say I haven't had a lot of time to watch the Colbert Report. I've seen it a couple times and always laughed, but his style doesn't suit me quite as well as Jon's.
That's all changed now.
I hereby declare my full support for Stephen Colbert because he just took smack talking to a level I don't think it's ever been at before.
Saturday night, Colbert was invited to speak at the White House Correspondents Dinner, an event attended by the President himself. I think Stephen got confused and thought it was a roast, because this man talked all kinds of smack on the President, right to his face. And poor mister Prezzy-prez didn't like it, not one wittle bit. (This is in keeping with his character; W generally doesn't like being confronted with reality.)
"I believe that the government that governs best is agovernment that governs least, and by these standards we have set up afabulous government in Iraq."And they get better.
"If anybody needs anything at their tables, speak slowly and clearly into your table numbers and somebody from the N.S.A. will be right over with a cocktail."
"When the president decides something on Monday, he still believes it on Wednesday -- no matter what happened Tuesday."
Also lampooning the press, Colbert complained thathe was “surrounded by the liberal media who are destroying this country, except for Fox News. Fox believes in presenting both sides ofthe story — the president’s side and the vice president's side."
Stephen Colbert has stones the size of Mount Rushmore.
