Humor Has It... that Stephen Colbert skinned 'em alive without leaving a hair on them at the WH Correspondants' Association Dinner, all 33% of the Bush "backwash". The rest of us licked our lips. It was delicious. Chef Colbert out did himself dishing it out with flair, liberally grinding the pepper mill in all the right places to perfection.
Go over to the new blog Thank You Stephen Colbert and add your name to the thousands and thousands of satisfied customers.
A good Re-Improved Colbert transcript can be found in a diary at Kos.
A clip of Colbert's routine can be seen at Crook and Liars.
UPDATE 5/4/06: I had to remove the clips from YouTube, according to their site they were taken down for copyright infringement from using the C-Span.org clip. Thankfully another taped clip of Colbert’s full speech at the WH Correspondents’ Dinner found HERE (total time 24:27).
