Speaking Truthiness to Power: More on Colbert

Sadly, “Speaking Truthiness to Power” isn’t my line. I saw this lovely image on Boing Boing.

Apparently, the video that was posted on YouTube isn’t there anymore, thanks to copyright holders C-SPAN complaining. The video is probably available on their website (if you can deal with streaming clips), but you can also get a copy at Crooks and Liars or via BitTorrent.

Predictably, it sounds like the routine didn’t go over so well with Bush and his aides. Shouldn’t they learn to take criticism?

Finally, a couple stories at Salon elucidate the beauty of Colbert’s routine and skewer the tepid or non-existant media coverage afterwards.
