If you haven't seen Stephen Colbert's performance at last night's White House Correspondents Dinner, do yourself a favor and watch it now. Right now. Best thing I've seen in weeks, months, years even. Go here or click the image below. (courtesy OGM)

I'm guessing Bush didn't even get half the jokes Colbert dropped, but he knew they were all at his expense. And he was not happy. Early reports of Colbert's performance seemed to indicate that he had bombed. But what those reports fail to mention is that nobody was laughing because the room was filled with the very same people (Bush & the press corps) that Colbert was eviscerating. Of course no one was laughing, they were too busy being ripped a new asshole. Shakes and her team sum it up best, and provide us with this kick-ass graphic to boot.

And since we're celebrating Mr. Colbert, do yourself a favor and watch his audition tape for Bush's press secretary as well as his devastating interview with Neocon poster boy Bill Kristol. Great stuff.

Oh, and whoever's idea this was?
