E&P: Colbert Lampoons Bush, "President Does Not Seem Amused"

WASHINGTON A blistering comedy tribute to President Bush by Comedy Centrals faux talk show host Stephen Colbert at the White House Correspondent Dinner Saturday night left George and Laura Bush unsmiling at its close.


Colbert, who spoke in the guise of his talk show character who ostensibly supports the president strongly, urged the president 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. They are re-arranging the deck chairs--on the Hindenburg.


As he walked from the podium the president and First Lady gave him quick nods, unsmiling, and left.
