I think Obama's got a great sense of humor. If there's one thing I can't fault him on, it's his dignified, self-deprecating laughter at his own roast. Some people just can't stand to be the butt of jokes.

So it's going to be about as funny as the time Rich Little did Bush's?

I remember when Bush had Colbert at the Correspondents' Dinner.

My mother told me how hilarious the Bush Impersonator was.  I said, oh, yeah, I saw the bit with Colbert.

Oh, yeah, she said, I guess there was another comedian, too.

Seeing that Colbert dinner was hugely cathartic at a time when most my age had given up on politics.

Would have been better with Will Ferrel, but still pretty good.

Man, they're really scraping the bottom of the barrell.

Too bad George Carlin isn't available. No one would have the balls to ask him though.

They should just have Triumph do it.

Colbert 2014. When I went to the dinner, I got Yakov Smirnoff.

You all sound so happy now, but wait until the actual Association Dinner and you discover that Jay Leno is doing the hosting instead.

Conan O'Brien cracks me up... Plus he's a Masshole, so he's got that going for him.

Bring back Colbert!

I have no reason to believe this is true but I like to think that the Bush white house invited Colbert, who had just started his new show, not knowing it was schtick.

You may be more right than you think.

If it's as good as Triumph at the Weiner Circle, I would love to see him at the dinner
 
2013-02-21 11:45:38 AM  
But will the Horny Manatee show up?
 
2013-02-21 01:31:24 PM  
I think Triumph and Biden would make a hell of a duo act.

Jesus, Trump is the only person on Planet Earth who can turn the combover into a comb-helmet. He looks like a farking X-wing pilot!

They already tried that and it was the worst.

Yes even worse than the year Rich Little hosted after Colbert.

Still waiting for ConeBone69 to get out of jail and resume hosting duties.

Colbert's was such a brave thing.  There was almost literally no mainstream outlet willing to say a single bad thing about Bush back then.  Dark days.
