Stephen Colbert should have a constellation named after him

Oh. My. God.

Stephen Colbert at the White House Correspondents' Dinner? It rivals Jon Stewart on Crossfire.

"I believe democracy is our greatest export. At least until China figures out a way to stamp it out of plastic for three cents a unit."

"So the White House has personnel changes. Then you write, 'Oh, they're just rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.' First of all, that is a terrible metaphor. This administration is not sinking. This administration is soaring. If anything, they are rearranging the deck chairs on the Hindenburg!"

Ha.

I must say, while I am NO fan of George Bush - I was embarassed for him watching that video clip. Yikes! I agree with you though. He doesn't seem to be getting the message any other way. Maybe he can work on Stephen Harper next?

I agree with you on Colbert, his expose on the "American Eagle" a while back killed me. However, as an Ontarian in "NL", you should look no further than our homegrown and exported Rick Mercer as a master of political satire. He'll be doin' the Harper/Bush dance.
