Stephen Colbert's White House Correspondant's Dinner Speech

Hey everybody

Just got home from a lovely evening at our friend Kate's house. She's got a wonderful little North Portland house with a gorgeous back yard, and a kick-ass talent for making special pies. Yummy!

I returned home to find the full text of Stephen Colbert's White House Correspondants Dinner Speech in my email box. My friend Mary Lasswell forwarded it on to me. You may or may not have heard that Colbert, who hosts The Colbert Report on Comedy Central (a send-up of Pundit-driven "talk" shows like Bill O'Reilly's, much like The Daily Show is a spoof of the Evening News), caused quite a stir with what he said. I myself thought that he delivered the stinging truth in a very very funny way... with Bush sitting just 10 feet away. Wish I could have been there...

Anyway, I'm not going to re-print the whole transcript here, but you can find it by clicking this link.

How's that for a start to your Monday morning? Hope you're all going to have a good week... and Kate, thanks for the fabulous evening!
