Stephen Colbert, brilliant member of The Daily Show and now host of his own Colbert Report, addressed the White House Correspondents Dinner, with Bush present. Colbert is brilliant and incisive, and delivers with a lethal deadpan. On the Colbert Report he assumes the personality of a right-wing talk show host, only taking their absurdities to levels that make them sputter. I highly recommend reading the transcript of his speech, and watching the video if you can.
I believe the government that governs best is the government that governs least. And by these standards, we have set up a fabulous government in Iraq. I believe in pulling yourself up by your own bootstraps. I believe it is possible -- I saw this guy do it once in Cirque du Soleil. It was magical. And though I am a committed Christian, I believe that everyone has the right to their own religion, be you Hindu, Jewish or Muslim. I believe there are infinite paths to accepting Jesus Christ as your personal savior. Ladies and gentlemen, I believe it's yogurt. But I refuse to believe it's not butter. Most of all, I believe in this president. Now, I know there are some polls out there saying this man has a 32% approval rating. But guys like us, we don't pay attention to the polls. We know that polls are just a collection of statistics that reflect what people are thinking in "reality." And reality has a well-known liberal bias.Best thing EVER.
Things we don't encounter in everyday life. (That photo is fine, but predictably, there are some unsettling photos in that collection.)
