Stephen Colbert brought a homemade batch of truthiness to the White House Correspondent Dinner.
And he served it up cold to the Commander-in-Chief.
You can view Stephen in all of his glory here:
Pay close attention to the look on the President's face when the camera stays on him for a loooong time. It looks like Bush is trying to figure out
A) How he can get Stephen Colbert drafted to the front lines in Iraq

David and I watched this together. It was interesting to see what the crowd laughed at and what they didn't laugh at. They laughed at the 'glacier' dig, which really isn't that funny when you think about it but didn't really laugh at the 'backwash' gag. That AP guy who signed up Colbert was a genius but obviously Colbert was playing to the wrong crowd.

Yeah...it's amazing that they booked Colbert for this event considering the fact that he does this type of thing EVERY night on his show.

I'm glad you watched it, though!
