succumbing to peer pressure

Monday, May 01, 2006

Oh Stephen Colbert! You just may deserve that post-Jon Stewart time slot:

But, listen, let's review the rules. Here's how it works: the president makes decisions. He's the decider. The press secretary announces those decisions, and you people of the press type those decisions down. Make, announce, type. Put them through a spell check and go home. Get to know your family again. Make love to your wife. Write that novel you got kicking around in your head. You know, the one about the intrepid Washington reporter with the courage to stand up to the administration. You know - fiction.

It goes on and on and is great. Mind you, he said all these things at the White House Press Correspondents dinner. Standing at a podium mere feet away from the president and first lady. Nice to see some people still have cojones.
