Like Boxing a Glacier

Last night, I got to see Stephen Colbert’s speech from the White House Correspondents Dinner, and wow… how awesome was that?!

Now I understand what all the fuss was about. I’m really glad I didn’t read any of the transcripts beforehand.

I was expecting him to be escorted from the room and locked up in a secret CIA prison for the rest of Bush’s term in office.

    I was able to catch some dl’s yesterday during lunch, so f’n hilarious. Sadly, I feel asleep during last night’s show, gotta make sure to try and catch tonight’s 8L30 rerun, see what he says about it

    Try to get a hold of the entire speech, if you can. So brilliant.

    The best part of the shebang is the parts where they pan to the audience. From the looks on people’s faces you could instantly tell their affiliation…

    And regardless of their affiliations, it seemed like everyone was afraid to laugh. Except for Scalia.
