If you've been watching or reading the mainstream media, you are probably unaware that the Comedian Colbert gave a scathing satire of the punditry and the president at the Correspondents' whatever dinner.
He was amazing.
He was so amazing I couldn't laugh. How do you laugh when you are watching someone get eviscerated? He was so on target I was feeling sympathy for the President and for the spineless press corps.
The laughter in the audience - not exactly laughter - it was the embarrassed laughter you laugh when someone is says something that is about to get himself fired. Colbert decided not to play by the rules, which include don't say anything that will make the president uncomfortable.
Colbert hammered the anti-policy attitude of the president, and his unwillingness and inability to think through issues in favor of the simplistic phrases digested by the media. But if the media had not been so sycophantic toward Bush, Colbert would not have been necessary. He would have seemed merely rude. Instead, because the MSM have been unwitting collaborators, Colbert is our prophet.
Well, not really a prophet, but perhaps a hero of a sort.
And the next day after I saw this clip, I watched an MSNBC clip on the dinner that didn't mention him at all. This is a "liberal" media?
