Can I get an Amen?

The Colbert-Press Club moment was pretty funny, even if the Helen Thomas bit dragged a tad long. What is much more interesting is how much ink/screen pixel space has been devoted to Colbert's satire since.

In my experience, there’s no bigger bunch of crybabies in American public life than the fops and courtiers of our Washington press corps.

...Too bitter ? It’s a matter of taste. Instead of trying to amuse his live audience, Colbert used them as a collective straight man. A TV performer, he pitched his act to the C-SPAN cameras. (Google has bought the rights. You can watch on your computer and decide.)

here is just the Colbert piece, if you are one of the three folks on this planet who has not seen it yet.
