Stephen Colbert came up big at the White House Correspondents' Dinner. He said nearly everything Little Bush isn't supposed to hear, including:
I believe that the government that governs best is the government that governs least, and by these standards we have setup a fabulous government in Iraq, and I believe, I believe in pulling yourself up by your bootstraps. I believe it is possible I saw this guy do it once in Cirq de Soleil -- it was magical.Transcript and video.
And though I am a committed Christian, I believe everyone has their right to their own religion, be it Hindu, Jewish or Muslim, I believe there are infinite paths to accepting Jesus Christ as your personal lord and savior.
Ladies and gentlemen, I believe its yogurt but I refuse to believe it’s not butter.
Most of all I believe in this president, now I know there are some polls out there saying this man has a 32% approval rating, but guys like us [turns to President] we don't pay attention to the polls. We know that polls are just a collection of statistics that reflect what people are thinking [makes airquotes] in reality, and reality has a well known liberal bias.
A review from the right wing board @ Free Republic:
He wasn't trying to be funny. He was taking the opportunity of being face to face with one of the greatest, kindest, most loving men on earth to shoot arrows of evil at him.Uodate: Fox News hated it (surprise!).
In stead of being angry with Colbert last night, I should have been praying for the spiritual protection of the President and First Lady.
I confess that I didn't think of that until later, when I did pray that any wounds they may have received would be healed.
God bless them both, and protect them from the attacks of the Evil One!
