Steve Colbert knocks one out of the park

Have you had a chance to see Steve Colbert's monologue at the White House Correspondant's Dinner? I have to say, although it's not the normal funny/silly jokes that the Correspondant's Dinner usually sits through, this was one brilliant moment of comedy. I guess people are questioning whether or not it was funny. I certainly think it was, but not in the traditional Jay Leno/David Letterman sense of topical jokes. It was true to Colbert's idealism and his politcal reporting on his Comedy Central show, the Colbert Report. The nervous laughter, the looks of the stunned correspondants as Colbert skewered Bush and his administration was priceless.

You can watch the videos here.

And you can read the transcripts on the Daily Kos if you're not able to sit and watch almost 30 minutes of true genius.

The audition tape with Helen Thomas had my crying I was laughing so hard. This is pure brilliance. Kudos to Colbert for being brave enough to stand in front of the Shrub and really let him know what people think of him. For once he sat unprotected and got to listen to it first hand. I understand that he and Laura got up and walked away as soon as Colbert had finished. Awwwww.... were your feelings hurt, Georgie?
