comedy: Stephen Colbert at Press Correspondents dinner

I'm not a big Daily Show / Colbert Repohhhrr fan, but friends turned me on to his performance at the White House Press Correspondents dinner, and it's great. Here's a good transcript.
But the rest of you [besides Fox], what are you thinking, reporting on NSA wiretapping or secret prisons in eastern Europe? Those things are secret for a very important reason: they're super-depressing. And if that's your goal, well, misery accomplished.

  • Thanks for the link! I downloaded a monstrous torrent of the whole thing (including the dull Bush double that the craven networks featured instead of Colbert's massacre of Bush and audience), I think from demonoid.com.

    "But, listen, let's review the rules. Here's how it works: the president makes decisions. He's the Decider. The press secretary announces those decisions, and you people of the press type those decisions down. Make, announce, type. Just put 'em through a spell check and go home. Get to know your family again. Make love to your wife. Write that novel you got kicking around in your head. You know, the one about the intrepid Washington reporter with the courage to stand up to the administration. You know - fiction!"
