If anyone has a link to the video of this dinner could they please post it.
I think the dems even lie to themselves. Clearly the comedian WASN'T.
I'm voting for Chris.
And .. that law was what resulted in a lot of family farms being lost. After the father's death, the taxes wiped out the working capital of the farm, and the families were forced to sell it to pay the taxes.
THAT IS A CRIME THE DEMOCRATS HAVE NEVER HAD TO BE ACCOUNTABLE FOR!!
I fully believe Colbert's intention was to embarrass and humiliate the President, not amuse.
I was outraged while watching, still am for that matter.
It's not your money and you don't deserve it. It's their money and they have every right to it. When you get any increase in income, they deserve their share.
As far as the congress-critters are concerned, all money belongs to the government and only the government knows how to be responsible with its spending.
Next thing you know, we will all be getting an allowance and those that produce/earn the most will get the least because those who don't produce/earn need it more!
You can watch the entire 'routine' at MSNBC's website (occasionally, even this network does something right):
[You don't get the great close-ups on this video, but you do get the hilarious interchange!]
After searching, I found a video. It is priceless!

Here is some fun Laura had at the 2005 dinner:
Well, I'll take IL DIVO any day of the week. They're going to be in San Diego in June - and when I tried to get tickets - they were almost already sold out. I'm bummed.
HA! Beat me! Here's Stephen Colbert. I watched one minute and got bored, so I have no idea what it's like.
I think it was on about 2 pm PT
exactly. Colbert was not at all funny. He was obnoxious, which, I presume he intended to be. But, I suspect, he thought he'd be funny too. Newsflash, to Mr.Colbert, you bombed.
Once again, our President shows he has class while those with no class make fools of themselves.
Is that Steve Doocey (Fox & Friends) with Rep. Jane Harmon?
She looks really thin in that picture too. I guess I should start working out...
Pres. Bush kept them laughing, spontaneously and often - Colbert did NOT keep even the lib crowd laughing - except lowly and rather taken aback - as if they thought it was supposed to be funny and therefore they should be laughing - but they were confused as to WHEN to laugh, since there was nothing funny about it
or 2. vicious
or 3. Not in the least funny
or 4. Way beyond the pale
or 5. All of the above.
'the ambulance for Colber's career'
ROFL. He sure bombed!
Rep. Roy Blunt
Wife: Roseann Ray (m. 1967, div. 2002, 3 children) Wife: Abigail Perlman (Philip Morris lobbyist, m. 18-Oct-2003) Son: Matt Blunt (Governor of Missouri)
(I'd like to know to know how many congresscritters + senators are involved with lobbyists)
Tommy looks great ..he's 78! Wonder if that's his daughter.
That was Steve Doocy
"At left is Fox News Channel's Steve Doocy."
Tiki deserves another look .. he's adorable.
Michael Brown .. gotta say he's not shrinking from the attacks ..
Justice Scalia was in a BIG hurry
Never heard of her, jonny .. but she's purty
Actress Kelly Carlson arrives for a party at the Macedonian Embassy in Washington following The White House Correspondents' Dinner on Saturday, April 29, 2006.
Negligee ... in public??? (Fred, how COULD you?.. (meoww ;)
The plumber's in the house!
Which turncoats were YOU schmoozing?
Tony, you're looking fantastic! (Now, wash that hand quick)
I will post my pix there..
Oh, BTW, Old Friend chose NOT to be with us yesterday. For some reason he thought it best to be in NYC with good friends/family ...
CELEBRATING HIS BIRTHDAY!
The nightgown look is so passe
My travel companion & I left DC/Hilton right after the president's "act".. I caught a little of the next act as we were saying our goodbyes to DC friends.. but it was sorry. The president was just so funny.
Did Colbert get much applause?
Would love to archive that --NOT COLBERT
Again, my pathetic attempt at humor falls flat.
Just like the guy last nite!
I love Fred but that girl looks like his wayward daughter instead of a wife.
Oh, well. Men!
Thanks. I watched it there and got to see the funny part while spared the embarrassing MC's nasty attempts at humor.
Tiki Barber is a stand in at time for FOX & Friends, does a good job.
CSPAN is reshowing the dinner NOW. But they're starting with the arrivals, etc. so it may be a while before they get to President Bush's speech.
Hello - thanks for the dose
The second photo down in that post, Bridges looks like a Muppet.
Here are the BACKs of two secret service agents. I have plenty of other shots but will just share these. They LOVED out stuff & gave us thumbs up. When they first saw us on the corner a group of about 6 made a quick street sweep to see if we were friend or foe. When they noted we were good guys, we got smiles & thumbs up. the gentleman by the plagerist sign is Bill (FReeper - wheelbarrow) who I traveled with. He hasn't been to DC since WW2 & is a WW2 vet with purple heart. Family friend
DollyCali & pooches Toby & Josy in front of the Bethesda Naval Hospital. Here is the thread on the Event we were Freeping
Pres is up NOW on CSPAN!!!
Watch it. I'm guessing it will make you angry.
#5 All of the above. And then some...
IMHO it was the only bit that was in any way funny
Yes that bit could have been really funny and even that he bombed even so I did smile a bit of the footage.
I agree. It really could have been funny but it was dragged out for so long that it was just irritating.
Anyone interested in reading my review of United 93, we saw it this afternoon and I posted on the FReeper review thread. See post #682:
IMHO that was not bad but Colbert just did not have the ability and charisma to narrate it.
yes he was
IMHO that dress was totally unsuitable
I agree plus she looked young enough to be his daughter
We have a similar campaign going on in this country. The newspaper we normally get actually gave stickers away recently to stick in rear window of your car to campaign to abolish this unfair tax.
It not only affects the rich in Britain but the average Joe has to pay it as well if their parents leave a house.
I also loved the litte bit where the news people were talking about a blown up toy Corgi. I laughed when they said the sniffer dog bit the toy Corgi's ear off.
Received and will do
[A re-post from earlier today]
THE PRESIDENT AND HIS ALTER EGO WERE AWESOME LAST EVENING and so was Wolfstar and the entire DOSE family: 1,282 comments and 22,536 views. CONGRATULATIONS!!!
BTW: Colbert got only one thing right last night . . .
"At the Bloomberg News post-show party, with guests including Desperate Housewives star James Denton, ER's Maura Tierney, Terence Howard, Ron Silver and others, COLBERT was almost the last person to arrive. He seemed pleased with his performance.
"I had a great time. THE PRESIDENT KILLED. HE'S A TOUGH ACT TO FOLLOW -- AT ALL TIMES. IT'LL BE TOUGH FOR WHOEVER COMES IN 2008, TOO." [Yes it will, Mr. Colbert, yes it will!]
