Video Link: Colbert Blisters Bush at Conference

Stephen Colbert stepped up to the podium and absolutely shredded Bush and his Administration in an experience that must have been far, far more squirm-inducing than the speeches at Coretta Scott King's funeral.

I mean he says.

it.

all.

My jaw dropped.

A brilliant, courageous, history-making performance. And Helen Thomas is fantastic. Colbert has become the one man unfraid to stand up to George Bush on live, national television. He is - no other word for it - a media hero. Watch the full, high-resolution video (as well as the creepy Bush double footage, if you must) and see why.

The unedited, full version can be downloaded here (use a Bittorrent client):

Bravo.

UPDATE: Vicky Brago-Mitchell has hosted smaller, Flash versions of the video in three parts. You can get them on her website here. Thanks Vicky.

Quote of the Day:
"I know the human being and fish can coexist peacefully."
-- George W. Bush


PS: Watch for the creepy exchange of smirks between Bush and Rove at 51:44, when Bush says, "God bless America". Does that look like sincerity to you? Hmm....
