Colbert Reports - White House Correspondents' Dinner

Stephen Colbert is brilliant, but most of his audience is not laughing by the end.

His skewer of McCain is perhaps the best line of the night. Bush is such a sitting duck.

I thought the the video audition for the press secretary job was too long and boring, but it is included in this set of three clips via YouTube:

Introduction and Opening Remarks

Main Remarks - Including McCain smackdown

Press conference video - long and not that good

I hope that most of the media types and all of the president's men went home pissed off after Colbert was finished. He played the traditional role of court jester - telling the truth while acting the fool. That is the only way Bush will every hear the truth. No wonder he was so sour at the end.
