Even if he didn’t get that many laughs at the White House Correspondents dinner, Stephen Colbert definitely gets our props for the absolutely scathing comedy speech he managed to get through without being wrestled to the ground by secret service agents. We have always loved ancient White House Correspondent Helen Thomas, and found her cameo in Colbert’s video hilarious, but President Bush was not amused by any of Colbert’s material and was visibly frowning through most of the speech, perhaps because he was the butt of almost every single joke.
Our friends at The Big Gay Picture also found a great clip of Colbert interviewing Rep. Phil Gingrey (R-GA) where he almost gets the Congressman to say he doesn’t think gays should have drivers licenses.
