Colbert's WH Correspondent's Dinner Speech

As a Colbert fan, I knew about this, but today was the first day that I was able to sit down and watch it, as well as read the commentary on it. I think that Editor & Publisher did a great job in covering why this has struck such a chord. And especially made a wonderful case by pointing out the blindness of the press by comparing the complete nonreaction from the press to Bush's WMD skit two years ago. For me, I was most pleased simply by the fact that he stood up and did this RIGHT IN FRONT OF BUSH! How many frustrated Americans would give their eyetooth to be able to point out what Bush has done so wrong? A lot and Stephen Colbert did it. He did it!

If anyone is interested in reading any of the articles from E&P, here are the links:

I was able to find the torrent at mininova of the speech, but you can also watch it on RP from C-spans -- here is the search results page, just click on the 2nd search result. Colbert White House Correspondents Dinner Video.

I know the internet has been abuzz about this and if anyone can link to other articles of interest regarding this, I would appreciate seeing them.
