Zinging the President, respectfully, of course.

The best of Stephen Colbert's White House Correspondent's Dinner Keynote address:
The audition:

Video of speech Part I and Part II

Brilliant blurbs via the Daily Kos:

"We're not so different, he and I. We get it. We're not brainiacs on the nerd patrol. We're not members of the factinista. We go straight from the gut, right sir? That's where the truth lies, right down here in the gut. Do you know you have more nerve endings in your gut than you have in your head? You can look it up. I know some of you are going to say "I did look it up, and that's not true." That's 'cause you looked it up in a book."

"Jesse Jackson is here, the Reverend. Haven't heard from the Reverend in a little while. I had him on the show. Very interesting and challenging interview. You can ask him anything, but he's going to say what he wants, at the pace that he wants. It's like boxing a glacier. Enjoy that metaphor, by the way, because your grandchildren will have no idea what a glacier is."

Stephen Colbert is all about TRUTH and FOX news in their infinite wisdumb disagrees, no suprise there.
