Was Scalia actually there to witness that?

I think he was.

Now that you mention it, I think so. Harmon is married, so I hesitate to assume Steve was escorting her.

Bush was great, Colbert was awful. I watched part of it, but couldn't stand how rude he was. For an evening that is supposed to be fun, Colbert sure didn't make the grade. I hope the correspondent's association issues an apology to the President over his outrageous performance. The only benefit out of last night's performance by COlbert, is that IMUS can finally say he wasn't the worst.

ROFLMAO!!! You just have to put this Gentleman's Quarterly pic of Ace on the AI thread this week. It's funnier than Colbert's routine.

"But somehow, Colbert found a way to turn that into something just as boring and unfunny as the rest of his act."

What a shame. Well, I never heard of this guy before, so no harm no foul.

Jonny, remember a couple of weeks ago when Simon told Kelly Pickler that "on paper" he thought her song choice would never work, but it turned out ok. And it was clear she'd never heard that expression before? I found that quite charming. Of course these things are confusing if you don't know their meaning.

Nice to see Ace extending his 15 minutes, good luck to all contestants, imho. Is he of Macedonian descent, and was that why he was at the Embassy's party?

Man, DC is probably the king of all party towns, when you get right down to it.

I missed most of Colbert's act last night except for the "press secretary" video. That was just embarrissingly lame.

I didn't realize until today how nasty his "jokes" were before that.

Colbert probably thinks he was hysterical.

Yeah. Hysterical. Of course, there's more than one definition and use of that word. I think he was hysterical in the other sense.

Sometimes when Bridges is a guest on a TV program I am not sure at first if he's Dubya or not. It takes a while to be sure. But then he does that laugh at the wrong moment and I know!!!!

I remember when Papa Bush invited Dana Garvey (?)to the White House and the guy said he was so scared at first but Papa Bush could not have been nicer to him.

Class is inborn and the Bush's all have it!

"The White House Correspondents' Association Dinner was televised on C-Span Saturday evening. Featured entertainer Stephen Colbert delivered a biting rebuke of George W. Bush and the lily-livered press corps. He did it to Bush's face, unflinching and unbowed by the audience's muted, humorless response."

I read the USA Today review...and I think they were WAY too kind to Colbert...and seemed to go out of their way to find someone to compliment him...seemed to be the other "actors", rather than any politicians or some media.

I was reading a financial advice column in the paper the other day and it was stated that at the present time......the person pays 45% of any money inherited over $2 million dollars.

That has got to end. It punishes people who have worked their hearts out in businesses or made sacrifices to build an estate.....it does not belong to the feds.

I sure do. Last night while waiting for the dinner to get started, C-SPAN showed a brief clip of Carvey at the WH during 41's term.

Not surprising, really. What I liked about the USA Today review was the nearly complete transcript of GWB and his alter ego.

Definitely Steve from F & F. And not only is Harmon married, so is Steve. Wife Kathy, son Peter and daughters Mary and Sally. Probably just a coincidence. They DO know each other because Harmon is someone they have on a lot to comment about National Intelligence matters. She is the ranking Dem on the House Intel Committee and I've seen her on Fox News and F & F many times.

Yeah. We can't see who else was with them when that shot was snapped.

"Intelligence" in Washington is a sometime thing. ;-)

I see enough of Harmon in the district where I live. She ran for governor, finished 3rd in the Dim primary, then ran for her old congressional seat again. Don't need to see her on my TV also. Barf!

Living in a barely still rural county I see the farms being sold off for housing. The land is now worth millions. All the time the farmer worked the land he barely made ends meet. The weather always being the enemy. The cost of fuel rising, having trouble finding farmworkers, etc.

After all that the government decides it's your partner????????

Our farmer friend inherited when his dad died. They had worked the farm for over fifty years. Dairy farming 24/7 and 365. When the farmer sold off a piece of the land due to taxes, the IRS was at the closing and took just about all of the sale money.

You are writing that to perhaps the strongest anti-tax person on this forum. Taxation at all levels of government is so rapacious and out of control that one day I think we may not be able to keep anything we earn or acquire. What they don't outright admit to is a tax, they call a "fee," or a "fine." (They criminalize more and more behavior mostly to be able to collect fines.) They tack "fees" onto all sorts of things. Phone and utility bills, for example. Government greed is the worst.
