Burning down the house!

For those of you who don't watch C-SPAN on Saturday evenings (there must be a few of you out there), here's a link to the first of three parts of Stephen Colbert's appearance at the White House Correspondent's Association Dinner. All I can say is,!

Colbert laid waste to every one in the room, including President Bush himself. I don't think I've seen such a fearless performance in my life. Just get past the lame joke about the 14 limos at the start, and like the best of the best sitcoms, don't wait for an attendee laugh track to cue your own guffaws.

This event is usually one of those "all in fun" roast kind of things, but Colbert pulled what I'd say is the equivalent of Jon Stewart's legendary Crossfire appearance - only more so. Your thoughts?
