Alright, The Colbert Report has officially replaced The Daily Show as my favorite show on television.

Therefore I shall celebrate with this spiffy new avatar.

Daily Show/ Colbert Report is possibly the best hour of television!

Ditto, but then again RWDBs have a better sense of humour

*I downloaded the bittorents, the show will never be aired in Australia.

Colbert is probably the best show on TV now. Love the Final Warning/Dead to Me Lists, Word of the Day, and how he interviews his guests!

I have to admit I enjoy the Colbert Report better than the Daily Show myself. He was always my favorite DS correspondent, I'm so happy to see him doing so well!!!!

It is amazing that he pulls off a 30 minute show by himself 4 days a week. No band, no sidekick and the guests are just fodder for his humor.

I love the 435-part series on "Get to know your districts"!

Colbert Does the White House Correspondents' dinner


Was he snubbed?

Stephen Colbert spoke tonight at the dinner and lampooned pretty much everything he could think of and Helen Thomas. I used the second half of his performance because it included the Generals, Scalia, the Faux press briefing and as E&P reported:
"As he walked from the podium the president and First Lady gave Colbert quick nods, unsmiling, and left. E&P's Joe Strupp, in the crowd, observed that quite a few felt the material was, perhaps, uncomfortably biting."


http://movies.crooksandliars.com/WH-Dinner-Colbert.wmv


"Colbert complained that he was "surrounded by the liberal media who are destroying this country, except for Fox News. Fox believes in presenting both sides-the president's side and the vice president's side."

He noted former Ambassador Joseph Wilson in the crowd, as well as " Valerie Plame." Then, pretending to be worried that he had named her, he corrected himself, as Bush aides might do, "Uh, I mean... Joseph Wilson's wife." He asserted that it might be okay, as prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald was probably not there.

Colbert's show on Comedy Central, is "Must See TV" at this point already and these types of performances are the toughest in the business to pull off when he's tackling issues that obviously made most of the crowd nervous.

C-Span is running it again in it's entirety.

Atrios has a picture posted about Gannon.

TMV, The Sister, Blondesense, Democratic D, News Hounds weigh in.

It was "uncomfortably biting" and that was exactly the point - it wasn't supposed to be a cutesy feel-good comedy shtick. To sit there 10 feet from the president and in front of a room filled with press and verbally slap them all in the face for their actions or inaction takes serious balls. Mad props to Colbert - that was absolutely brilliant.

I'd be uncomfortable too if I was a member of the press there. The truth hurts, after all.

I loved it .

So don't pay attention to the approval ratings that say 68% of Americans disapprove of the job this man is doing. I ask you this, does that not also logically mean that 68% approve of the job he's not doing? Think about it. I haven't.
But don't drink that last third, it's backwash .

Which might explain why Colbert is curiously absent or downplayed in all the major media reports on the dinner.
