For what it's worth, I've read the text of Colbert's Correspondent Association presentation. It's true that he sailed pretty close to the line.

But? For a president who is famously shielded from harsh reality by his entire staff? I applaud Colbert for having the courage to tell the actual truth to the man's face.

Speaking truth to power is one of the freedoms you have in a democracy. Anyone who invited Colbert to speak at this gathering and thought that both the Administration and the media weren't going to get smacked around was delusional.

If Bush isn't aware that much of the nation agrees with what Colbert says, he's dangerously ignorant.

Well, he's dangerously ignorant anyhow.

If the media isn't aware that much of the nation agrees that they've become weak, compliant, and lazy, well, it's time they heard that bit of truth as well.

I don't care, though.
