Everyone is harping on how Steve Colbert was too hard on George W. Bush the other night at the correspondents’ dinner. Everyone is asking if he went over the line with his jokes. Well let me set the record straight.
Steve Colbert did not make any jokes about George W. Bush. He simply told the truth about Bush. The joke however was on the so called “journalists” of this nation. The target of Mr. Colbert’s comedy routine was our media, not George W. Bush. When people say that he was harsh on Bush what they are actually saying is that the truths about Bush and his administration are in fact harsh or over the line or offensive. All Colbert did was point this out and poke fun at the media for not holding Bush accountable for his over the line harsh offensive reign as the decider in chief. Think about it!
