stephen colbert hands president his repor-card

the internets is alight with reports of stephen colbert staging a coup where he was invited by associate press to the white house press corp dinner. he basically did what jon stewart could not do, which is make fun of the president right in front of him. and boy was it good!

an article covering it is from editor and publisher. i've watched it via torrent already, but its available in highlight form, or on youtube as well. of course, bbc chose the less controversial comedian to report on who impersonated bush.

needless to say, president bush was not amused.
