NYT finally recognizes Colbert’s speech at White House Correspondence dinner

Stephen Colbert, of Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report, finally gets some love/hate from mainstream media. His White House Correspondents’ Association dinner speech was very Bush bashing in a subtle, but also entertaining way while the President seemed rather uncomfortable in his chair during the full twenty minutes.
Still, Stephen Colbert produced a great comedic act just like his daily shows on Comedy Central and probably pushed some buttons of conservatives and the non-speaking liberal media. As Jon Stewart said on The Daily Show a couple nights ago: “balls-a-licious”.
Stephen Colbert, you might not get much coverage from mainstream media for your brilliant act, but we of the blogosphere love you for speaking out about problems that no one else has the cajones to address. And through comedy, you addressed serious issues in an amusing manner.
