14. Wow! What courage. Colbert called everyone out. He's the man!!!
What a stinging rebuke and painfully truthful presentation. It really covered all the bases and laid out the treachery of the President and Vice President full on, as well as the complacency of the press and their collusion with the administration on the war. He also nailed that one sided propaganda machine, Fox news and he even hammered the American public for their inaction. Colbert is a hero for this -- that was one the gutsiest exercises of free speech I've ever seen. Bush got up to shake his hand at the end, which surprised me since Colbert just made of fool of him and the press collectively without batting an eye for almost a half hour. Bush is too stupid to realize when he's being called out. I loved the way Colbert laid everything out on the table, and let the chips fall where they may. Astonishing!!! He even blasted the pols for corruption and accelerating global warming. It was a masterpiece and a badly needed breath of fresh air. The people should bestow a medal of honor on him for true patriotism.
