    Stephen Colbert

    Screw show-and-tell and toastmasters, if any one's gonna learn about maintaining composure and public speaking, they should learn from this guy.

    The dude was maybe like, 2 feet away from him, and speaking right to his face.

    I love the Colbert Report. It's part of the small late night television block late prevents me from getting any sleep before work:

    Daily Show With Jon Stewart
    Colbert Report
    Project Runway
    Third Watch

    And then it's time to leave for work

    Man, that was too good! Thanks for posting that JERI.

    Stephen Colbert is comic genius. I can't believe they asked him to speak at that thing. The man has nerves steel and balls of, um... steelier steel.

    I thought it was hilarious how the funniest most politically charged parts got the least laughs from the crowd.

    When they panned out to the crowd it seemed to me that there were two types of people. Those who just werent pleased in the slightest... and those who were quietly sniggering, trying to stop from bursting out laughing.

    I think some people were just afraid to laugh, but went home and chatted about him for hours, lol.

    I too live in the land of Bush bumper stickers, But I am definately number 2 of that 10. I can't see how even a fan of our current administration could get through that without at least a stifled grin. Very impressive Colbert!

    Stephen Colbert carries his balls in a wheelbarrow.

    Someone will probably find his body later next month after his apparent suicide.

    I think he has funny moments but some days he just kinda goes a bit /too/ far for me in a "yeah...I went there..oooo" kinda way. Him and Carlos Mencia. Ugh. Hate that guy.

    It's not so shocking considering that he's satirizing a quote made by Nagin himself during a press conference. Something along the lines of, "This city is made of chocolate, and we're going to rebuild it with chocolate." It was pretty bizarre hearing a mayor refer to his people like that.

    Oh yeah, and Stephen Colbert is my hero. I rarely watch tv, with the exception of him and the Daily Show. I didn't believe he was actually asked to host that White House press dinner until I saw the video myself. And when I did see it, I laughed the hardest I have in a long time.

    Help reduce the bear population... set forest fires

    (colbert is deathly afraid of bears).

    i've been a big fan since he did the voice of Phil Ken Sebben, Mentok the Mindtaker, and Reducto on Harvey Birdman

    The best/worst/best part is that Colbert rammed through more honest critique, and real observation in 20 minutes than the entire mainstream media has in 5 years.. and he did it right in front of the President's bewildered, purse-lipped face. Bush is so myopically focused on his own version of reality, and so sheltered and padded from direct criticism, it was good to see something finally penetrate. Even better was that this was irony and satire, not the direct, pundit-centric attack that Washington is normally used to, that struck the blows.

    According to reports, Laura Bush did not shake Colbert’s hand after the dinner.
    "Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed, The world in arms is not a way of life at all, in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from an iron cross."

    oh man, this is pure gold!

    Colbert is a true hero. I really am not surprised he took this opportunity to do just what he did.... awesome.
