Stephen Colbert absolutely eviscerated George W. Bush and his failed presidency at the White House Correspondents Dinner last night. Click either pic to watch over 11 minutes of blistering truth (not truthiness):
Update: Go give Stephen some thanks.
YouTube has Colbert's complete, unedited performance (in 3 parts) here. (Tough crowd or just a bunch of complete idiots, you decide.)
My favorite line from Colbert's routine:
"I stand by this man. I stand by this man because he stands for things. Not only for things, he has stood on things. Things like aircraft carriers and rubble and recently flooded city squares. And that sends a strong message, that no matter what happens to America, she will always rebound with the most powerfully staged photo ops in the world."Colbert video courtesy of the most-excellent onegoodmove which also has Colbert's (overly long) "audition tape" for White House Press Secretary.
