Green Sky Johnny

Johnny Rocketseed sniffs about the White House Correspondents Association dinner:
. . . Commentary this year focused on the comedy: President Bush showed up with a look-alike version of himself who uttered the President's real thoughts while Bush stuck to the platitudes. The routine, which was funny, was well received. . . . The big news story was that the featured comedian, someone named Steve Colbert, apparently bombed. He did a virulently anti-Bush routine that got few laughs. . . . I wasn't surprised by this, inasmuch as I'd never heard of Steve Colbert, and it's been a long time since I heard a political humorist who was very funny. [italics are Spot’s]

Oh Johnny, that doesn’t even have a
truthiness ring to it. Colbert gave your boy George a drubbing, and the whole White House press corps was there to see it and feel ashamed about the preening sycophants they have been.

Michael Scherer writes in Salon about what really happened.

What color is the sky in your world, Johnny?
