Stephen Colbert at the White House Press Dinner

I'm sure most of you sat home on a Saturday night to watch C-SPAN (like me), but just in case you were out on the town having a good time, I'm providing you with the speech Stephen Colbert gave at the White House Press Dinner last night. It's awesome. Click on Stephen and go to the clip. Warning: it's a large file.

From Crooks and Liars:

"Colbert complained that he was "surrounded by the liberal media who are destroying this country, except for Fox News. Fox believes in presenting both sides-the president's side and the vice president's side."

He noted former Ambassador Joseph Wilson in the crowd, as well as " Valerie Plame." Then, pretending to be worried that he had named her, he corrected himself, as Bush aides might do, "Uh, I mean... Joseph Wilson's wife." He asserted that it might be okay, as prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald was probably not there.

Here's the first part, in case you want to watch it as well.
