Correspondent's Dinner

Never had too much use for the thing -- the rich and famous get together to bask in how great they all are. Kind of like the Oscars, only without the glamour and style, and with much uglier people. Apparently, Steven Colbert killed, though the Lord High Commander was not amused, alas.

Money Quote:

"One of the great things about President Bush is that he sticks to his principles. When the president decides something on Monday, he still believes it on Wednesday - no matter what happened Tuesday."

Okay, I can't resist -- one more:

[Colbert] 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. “This administration is soaring, not sinking,” he said. “They are re-arranging the deck chairs--on the Hindenburg.”

Up-Update. Much better video here.
