There is no way to top Colbert's whole performance. The shout out to Plame made me fall out of the chair laughing myself into a frenzy.
A good day to be an anti-Bush gal.

That whole thing was just incredible.

Editor & Publisher Magazine made it a point to say that Bush's comedy went over better with the crowd than Colbert's--- Well, no shit sherlock. Colbert dissed the press that made up the audience as much as he did Bush.

And... Is there ever a NOT good day to be an anti-Bush gal (With the possible exception of the first Tuesdays in November of 2000 and 2004, I would imagine...)?
