Somehow, I missed my invitation to the White House Correspondent's Dinner. Sounds like it was a lot of fun. President bush had a comedy routine where he mispronounced the word "nuclear" and got corrected by a look alike double.
CNN is all over the President's bit with his other self. What you're not seeing on CNN is the routine that Stephen Colbert performed after that. When Don Imus mentioned the "Blue dress" in front of the Clintons it became national news. So far this morn, NBC hasn't mentioned Colbert once.
Joseph Wilson and his wife, Valerie Plame, were there, and so was a Doobie Brother...wearing a kilt.
...Colbert complained that he was “surrounded by the liberal media who are destroying this country, except for Fox News. Fox believes in presenting both sides—the president’s side and the vice president’s side." He also reflected on the good old days, when the media was still swallowing the WMD story.
Addressing the reporters, he said, "You should spend more time with your families, write that novel you've always wanted to write. You know, the one about the fearless reporter who stands up to the administration. You know-- fiction."
Here"s E&P with their take...Damn, I wish I hadn't overlooked my invite...Bush was "Not Amused"...
