The No Fact Zone

Not sure what the AP was thinking when they invited Stephen Colbert to be the keynote speaker at the White House Correspondents annual dinner last Saturday. As Jon Stewart put it, "Apparently he [Colbert] was under the impression that they'd hired him to do what he does every night on television". Colbert has come of age, the speech was nothing short of brilliant. He thoroughly spanked the DC press crowd, plus W, did it to their faces and on their turf. Enjoy (Update: As of 5/8/06 CSPAN has forced YouTube and ifilm to take down the Colbert speech. Here's the version the GOOGLE cut the exclusive deal for):
