Who will Bush nuke first, Iran or Colbert?

If you haven't seen Stephen Colbert's hilarious speech at the White House Correspondent's Dinner, you must now. Go here for part 1, part 2, and part 3.

According to U.S. News and World Report, the truthiness really hurt the presidents feelings.

Colbert crossed the line," said one top Bush aide, who rushed out of the hotel as soon as Colbert finished. Another said that the president was visibly angered by the sharp lines that kept coming.

"I've been there before, and I can see that he is [angry]," said a former top aide. "He's got that look that he's ready to blow."

A great article
from Salon
, writer Michael Schrerer on why the President's feelings were hurt.
The highligh of the article:

Then he turned to the president of the United States, who sat tight-lipped just a few feet away. "I stand by this man. I stand by this man because he stands for things. Not only for things, he stands on things. Things like aircraft carriers and rubble and recently flooded city squares. And that sends a strong message, that no matter what happens to America, she will always rebound -- with the most powerfully staged photo ops in the world."

It really hurts when someone pokes holes in your version of reality.
