Steven Colbert

Man of Steel

Quote

Colbert, who spoke in the guise of his talk show character, who ostensibly supports the president strongly, urged the Bush to ignore his low approval ratings, saying they were based on reality, "and reality has a well-known liberal bias."

He attacked those in the press who claim that the shake-up at the White House was merely re-arranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. "This administration is soaring, not sinking,"he said. "If anything, they are re-arranging the deck chairs on the Hindenburg."

Colbert was a scream. Crooksandliars.com has a clip up. :D

Glad he got his own show. His segment was always a high point on the Daily Show.

Thing is, it was a bit more critical of the president than past things like this. Why exactly do presidents do this? ???

Because, for the most part, they are over protected, oblivious and out of touch with the world?

His assessment and lampoons of the media were pretty on target. For a “liberal” media as some claim, in light of the biggest verbal attack at one time and place, the media is sure quiet. I guess he’s 100% right in his critique.

But they can’t be so oblivious as to think that such an event won’t include some pretty harsh remarks?

Anyway, Colbert was brilliant.

You've watched Colbert interview before..............he pulls no punches. At very least, the guy who booked him is oblivious. So are the guys who OK'd the booking. So is the President for going out in public to an event where the audience isn't cherry picked. Remember the man who stood up and said he was ashamed and asked when GW would be ashamed? He slipped through the cherry picking process.

Morley Safer profiled Stephen Colbert’s rise from “The Daily Show,” to “The Colbert Report,” into the man who just headlined at the White House Correspondents’ dinner. They played some of his best clips from both shows which revealed the brilliance Colbert brings into our living rooms.


There’s a vid up…(I haven’t watched it yet).

It’s too bad Colbert didn’t just do a videotape for his entire performance (although Helen Thomas upstaged him).
