Not sure if this should go under politics or not, feel free to move it there. I must say, he has some balls to say some of this stuff right in front of those people.

Oh man, that was awesome.

"Look how great you've been on tax cuts, WMD intelligence, global warming! We didn't want to know, and you had the courtesy not to find out!"

Yeah, I caught a rerun of it yesterday on C-Span. Great stuff. The audience looked as though they didn't know how to react.

"I stand by this man because he stands for things. Not only for things, he stands on things, like aircraft carriers, rubble and recently flooded city squares. And that sends a strong mesasge that no matter what happens to America she will always rebound with the most powerfully staged photo ops in the world!"

What's also very intriguing about this story is that despite, literally, unfolding before the press corps' eyes, they haven't been reporting it. This story has been "broken" almost entirely by bloggers.

Here (http://news.yahoo.com/s/huffpost/20060501/cm_huffpost/020130;_ylt=A86.I2xvSVZE09gAKwv9wxIF;_ylu=X3oDMTBj MHVqMTQ4BHNlYwN5bnN1YmNhdA--) is a pretty interesting take on the whole issue.

He wins his own Big Brass Balls...


Because that took "muchos huevos grandes."

Now, if anyone in the government saw a single episode of his, they'd know he's completely anti-Bush. Why would they invite him to this dinner? Are they really THAT stupid?

On the up-note: I'm cracking up right now.

Is there anywhere else that I can watch this without it buffering every two seconds?

05-01-2006, 07:29 PM
Mine has yet to buffer a second time.

05-01-2006, 09:46 PM
Does anyone have an alternate link? Buffering is killing me.

His nuts must be harder than diamonds to so completely rip the President a new asshole while standing ten feet away from him. The news media is almost completely ignoring this.

I just read about it. Thanks for the link.

Love it love it love it.

Some of that stuff I've heard on the Colbert Report before but man oh man. I would not be able to do that. I mean, Bush is literally right there. It's just, yeah, wow.

You almost act like Bush understands what's going on. :p
