Stephen Colbert and the White House Correspondents' Association dinner

Stephen Colbert's speech at the annual White House correspondents' dinner was a biting piece of comedy - he played the Fool, in that Shakespearean sense of the word, and the uncomfortable response of those gathered (for my money, he skewered the press just as much as the White House) was a sign of hitting the mark, I thought, even if the video at the end dragged on a bit.



We don't get Colbert's new show in Singapore (political humour doesn't always travel, I suppose) but he was always great on the Daily Show.
