My New Celebrity Crush Is Ballsalicious

That's Jon Stewart's word, not mine.

Over at this shiny new blog I'm digging, I Obsess, I found a link to a site called Thank You Stephen Colbert.

This site has links to the full video of Stephen Colbert's "comedic" speech at the recent White House Correspondents' Dinner. I've been meaning to link to a video for this for two days now, but I haven't had a lot of free time to do research on the web and I've had trouble finding a good link to the video in its entirety until now.

If you are a person of any political persuasion who is dissatisfied with our nation's current direction under the reigning administration, and you haven't seen this yet, WATCH IT NOW. If you just read a transcript, or get the gist from a few choice quotes in one of the few mainstream articles to mention this, you will do yourself a disservice, trust me. Seeing searing political satire such as this delivered less than TEN FEET away from its primary intended target is stunning, to say the least.

Say what you will about whether or not it's funny; the point is, it's true.

Note: Being that the Thank You site links to IFILM, and IFILM is skanky, some of the advertised videos on the side may be NSFW, but this is the best quality video I've been able to find.

hehehe. ballsalicious. I love that word. and I love - so very much - the new triumverate of power that is the two Steves and John. (Colbert/Carrell/Stewart.) I would very much enjoy a 2Steves&John sandwich, with a side of Patrick Fitzgerald, and a healthy dose of Keith Olbermann sauce. Yum.

Hey, and awww shucks, thanks for the mention! I am blushing as I write.
