Bush gets it..

Doesn't really matter if you are a fan of George Dubya Bush or not. This video of Stephen Colbert (host of Comedy Central's fake news show) at the Washington Annual Correspondence Association Dinner ripping into the USA president and the stateside media armed with nothing but razer sharp, Minora Blade like, anecdotes is one of the most entertaining things doing its rounds on the net.

After watching it, it did not find it all surprising that the US press did not cover this bit of the evenings procedings at all. As they say: Freedom and Democracy means you can do or say anything you please, as long as you don't say anything about the guys who "control" that same Freedom and Democracy...

This wants me dig into Zuma a bit, but I'll leave that for another post.
