By now everyone paying attention to the news knows that my homeboy(nah, I don't know him, but he's from my hometown) Stephen Colbert ripped Gee Dubya a new one while hosting The White House Correspondents Dinner. What? Did those idiots really think that Colbert was the faux Fox News blowhard that he plays (skewers) each night on his show? Who booked this thing? Either way let's here it for subversives. Colbert slips in as a genial TV comedian/commentator with perfect Republican hair and proceeds to fucking shred the Bush Admin. in a way few "legitimate" politicos ever could.
Anyway, what's interesting is that there were a multitude of videos of Colbert's speech uploaded onto YouTube within 24 hours of the event.
Then, less than a day later, every video has since been removed (although they show up under YouTube's "Most Discussed" header). Now when you click a link to one of the videos you instead get a red-letter message saying it has been removed due to "copyright infringement." Of course what's amazing about this is that among the same list of available video clips are innumerable anime like Naruto, Full Metal Alchemist, Inuyasha, and Bleach; yet none have been deleted due to "copyright infringement."
YouTube allows its viewers to "flag" explicit and/or copyrighted content.
You can't help but wonder if red-faced conservatives came along and flagged all the Colbert videos? Maybe they cain't handle tha truth? Just the same you can read a transcript of the the blistering speech HERE (and maybe see the video as well). Or HERE
A sampling: "Wow, wow, what an honor. The White House correspondents' dinner. To just sit here, at the same table with my hero, George W. Bush, to be this close to the man. I feel like I'm dreaming. Somebody pinch me. You know what? I'm a pretty sound sleeper -- that may not be enough. Somebody shoot me in the face. Is he really not here tonight? The one guy who could have helped."
