In his fearless speech, Colbert absolutely eviscerated Bush while pretending to praise him. He was so brutal and uncompromising that even some folks who despise Bush were tempted to feel sorry for him. It's easy enough to make fun of the president from the safe remove of a television studio in Manhattan; it's a whole lot harder to ruthlessly lampoon the most powerful man in the world while he's sitting close enough to breathe down your neck.

I remember when I was watching that live on C-SPAN and I just could not believe that it was happening. I knew that Colbert was going to have some fun with him, but I didn't think he was going to be that brazen about it. And even though I think Colbert is hilarious and GWB was a dimwit, I think I did feel just a tiny bit sorry for him at that moment.

Actually, I'm still not completely sure that GWB realized just how bad Colbert was sticking it to him at the time. Maybe someone explained it to him the next day?
