I think the dems even lie to themselves. Clearly the comedian WASN'T.

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):

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.

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.

Wonderful photos Wolfstar! Thanks so much. Again, our President shows his grace and humor in the face of none from some others.

Thank God for George W. Bush.

Then Colbert, host of The Colbert Report on Comedy Central, kept everyone laughing, poking fun at all sorts of topics, but with an overall theme of Bush.

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

IMO Colbert was unwatchable

Clobert was:

1. despicable

or 2. vicious

or 3. Not in the least funny

or 4. Way beyond the pale

or 5. All of the above.

"At left is Fox News Channel's Steve Doocy."

Justice Scalia was in a BIG hurry

Never heard of her, jonny .. but she's purty

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

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

I agree we have comedians like that in Britain. On the other hand you have comedians who perform live much better, though normally live they have a fair bit of blue material maybe that was another problem he knew he had to be clean.

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.

Hi snugs. I got your FReemail and also the CD's of the Queen's birthday. I was enthralled with them. I especially loved the Corgis, of course. The one that sits up on his haunches begging for a treat remind me of the first dog I ever had -- Sam. He would sit like that next to me at the dinner table. I've never had another dog with that particular mannerism. Never even saw another one do it until I saw the Queen's Corgi do it.

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.

[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!]
