Comedy Central’s Stephen Colbert, the featured comedian, fell flat. Allah Pundit writes:
In Colbert’s defense, he might not have been playing for laughs. The dissident posture is very important to our friends on the left; if SC had kept things light and wasted his opportunity to speak “truth” to power, they’d have crucified him for it.

At the Bloomberg News post-show party, with guests including Desperate Housewives star James Denton, ER’s Maura Tierney, Terence Howard, Ron Silver and others, Colbert was almost the last person to arrive. He seemed pleased with his performance.
“I had a great time. The president killed. He’s a tough act to follow — at all times. It’ll be a tough for whoever comes in 2008, too.”
Colbert said the president seemed to get a kick out of the comedy.
“He was very nice. He was like, ‘Good job, good job.’ ”
