road.jpg Steven Colbert eviscerates Bush at White House Press Correspondents Dinner: “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, ‘and reality has a well-known liberal bias.’ 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. ‘This administration is soaring, not sinking,’ he said. ‘If anything, they are re-arranging the deck chairs on the Hindenburg.’ Colbert told Bush he could end the problem of protests by retired generals by refusing to let them retire. He compared Bush to Rocky Balboa in the “Rocky” movies, always getting punched in the face—’and Apollo Creed is everything else in the world.'” (video)
