COLBERT THE EGO-HEAD: FAUX OR NO?
The Press Dinner is traditionally a bipartisan oasis.
Metaphorically speaking, the President did his part by artistically displaying a humorous, self deprecating graffiti appropriate to the evening.
Colbert threw fecal matter on the wall.
Either he did not understand the historical context of his assignment or his ego drove him to make the evening about himself: in which case he morphed into his own faux ego-head character.
I have the "Daily Show" on my T.V. speed dial and would gladly stand in line to cast a vote to impeach this administration but I found Colbert to be "boorish."
