So Stephen Colbert's speech at the White House Press Correspondent's dinner happened while I was away on tour, so I didn't hear about it until a few days ago. I assumed that *everyone* had seen it, and was astonished to go over to dinner at my brother's just now, and find that he and his friends hadn't heard about it at all.
So, if you haven't seen this, you have to, really. If you've only read the transcript, you can't appreciate the fact that George W. Bush was sitting five feet away while these things were being said.
It's on Salon, so you'll have to click the "Free Daypass" option and watch an ad to see it, but it's the only place I'm finding the full, unedited video.
It's heroic, really. I can't believe it happened. Whether it's funny or not is totally beside the point (although it is, in places, very funny indeed).
