Stephen Colbert, making presidents, politicians, pundits and the press corps ‘œuncomfortable’ ‘” and that’™s just a damned shame. Crooks and Liars has video of the second half of Colberts bit at the White House Press Corps dinner, and Cspan will be replaying the whole thing in its’™ entirety. He may have hurt the Presidents widdle feewings ‘”- awwww, so sad.

A blistering comedy ï–¿–½tributeï–¿–½ to President Bush by Comedy Centralï–¿–½s faux talk show host Stephen Colbert at the White House Correspondent Dinner Saturday night left George and Laura Bush unsmiling at its close.

Earlier, the president had delivered his talk to the 2700 attendees, including many celebrities and top officials, with the help of a Bush impersonator.

Colbert, who spoke in the guise of his talk show character, who ostensibly supports the president strongly, urged the Bush to ignore his low approval ratings, saying they were based on reality, ï–¿–½and reality has a well-known liberal bias.ï–¿–½

He attacked those in the press who claim that the shake-up at the White House was merely re-arranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. ï–¿–½This administration is soaring, not sinking,ï–¿–½ he said. ï–¿–½If anything, they are re-arranging the deck chairs on the Hindenburg.ï–¿–½

Update: If the Crooks and Liars or Cspan servers are overloaded, you can also catch Colbert’™s bit here on YouTube.
