The Colbert Report is quickly becoming more important to watch for me than the Daily Show, when it comes to getting the true sense of what is actually happening in politics. The satire on the Colbert Report is rather biting and awfully sharp, but it is some of the funniest stuff I have ever seen, as well. He was the featured comedien at the White House correspondent's dinner. Crooks and Liars has a video capture. I would say that the performance was one of the funniest I have seen in a long time. It was even funnier because noone was willing to laugh with the jackass, I mean President, sitting there, but you know that many of them had to be dying with a desire to bust out. Of course, we know that the jackass, I mean President, has no sense of humor, so he didn't get any of the jokes. Neither did any of the right wing nutjobs that pepper the blogsphere. Still, Colbert, if he can keep it up, will possibly become the foremost satirist of the early 21st century.
