In case you missed this

I got to watch to this live yesterday. All by itself it made getting the Droid worth every penny:

And the (semi-)serious side here.

If you need further proof that what Colbert did yesterday is right up there with his White House Correspondents Dinner masterpiece, check out the response of Rep. Steve King (R-Wackyland):
"Maybe we should be spending less time watching Comedy Central and more time considering all the real jobs that are out there, ones that require real hard labor," King said bitterly. He invoked the "Joe the Plumbers of the world who, many days, would prefer the aroma of fresh dirt to that of the sewage from American elitists who disparage them even as they flush."

Oh yes he did. Yes, he really did invoke Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher, the unemployed plumber/Republican prop. I'm waiting now for the footage of Mr. Wurzelbacher working in the fields. Because until he does, invoking his name simply proves Colbert's point.

There are no words to describe tha awesomeness displayed yesterday by this Sunday School teacher from Montclair. He makes me proud to live in Joisey.

More important than invoking Joe the "Plumber," he quoted that Jesus guy that so many folks keep going on about. "Least of my brethren" indeed; not that anybody in Congress gives a darn.
