Two Presidents, one killer speech

Fantastic speech by Stephen Colbert at the White House correspondents' dinner. The 'real' bush must have been squirming.

Some excerpts:

"I'm a simple man with a simple mind, with a simple set of beliefs that I live by. Number one, I believe in America. I believe it exists. My gut tells me I live there."

"I stand by this man because he stands for things. Not only for things, he has stood on things. Things like aircraft carriers and rubble and recently flooded city squares. And that sends a strong message, that no matter what happens to America, she will always rebound with the most powerfully staged photo ops in the world."

A part of me will miss Dubya when he's gone, mainly because I don't think there will be another President who is so easy to take the piss out of. Unless they change the law and Arnie gets in.
