I've never voted for any Bush. As for today's mainstream media, well, don't get me started (no really, my family begs you--don't get me started).
From that frame of mind I watched Stephen Colbert's now famous appearance at the big dinner in D.C. . . . eh [Hot Type, May 12]. He had two or three minutes' worth of sharp material, which took him 20 minutes to deliver, while playing a character that wasn't new or original in Mark Twain's era. Bush gets twitted that sharply by Jay Leno's writers; hell, I've heard the Capitol Steps' lame parody songs cause as much discomfort as Colbert's speech did.
Satire is like sex: each generation thinks they've newly invented it.
