Colbert at White House Correspondents Dinner

In Editor & Publisher's version of events, the president is not amused.
Among attendees at the black tie event: Morgan Fairchild, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, Justice Antonin Scalia, George Clooney, and Jeff "Skunk" Baxter of the Doobie Brothers--in a kilt.

Christa and I watched it online (click here for a growing list of links to the video), and it's clear at points that the majority of the crowd is not amused. At times, he's kinda bombing. A fearless performance, nonetheless. But watching the video's a little uncomfortable, like Stewart's airsuckingly awkward confrontation with Paul Begala and Tucker Carlson on CrossFire.

Still, CrossFire was cancelled just a few weeks after that video blazed across the internets.

One can dream.
