Stephen Colbert was the keynote speaker at the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner yesterday in Washington D.C. He spoke as his humorless, right-wing alterego made popular on his show The Colbert Report, and nailed President Bush on virtually every front. The audience laughed uneasily throughout the speech, and Laura Bush refused to shake his hand afterwards. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.
