Stephen Colbert is definitely getting audited this year

I was all set to post something about our favorite blowhard newsman's speech at the White House Correspondents Association dinner, in which Stephen Colbert unleashed a merciless roasting of President Bush right to the latter's increasingly red-faced and tight-lipped face. Thankfully, Slowly Going Bald has saved me the trouble and included links to the video to boot. Do yourself a favour and watch it. It's an exhibition of brass balls and cutting satire that'll go down in history, and unless you were watching C-SPAN over the weekend, you missed it.

The best thing about Colbert's bit is how it reveals the lack of humor on right wing blogosphere, which almost to a man found it unfunny and a huge failure. I like Jane Hamsher's take on it at Firedoglake.

Note to self: when changing "on the right" to "in the right wing blogosphere" change the entire thing.

Also, don't post on peyote.
