Yeah, that speech was funny and made even more so by the fact that no one was really sure if the Bush Administration had hired him to do his character or not so the reaction was... quite interesting!

As for the thing about news, you bring up a very good and true point. I think also that out of all the news outlets, satyrical shows can be trusted to give you most of the straight facts because they don't have any particular bias - they aim to make fun of everyone.

From now on, I bet the White House event planning people are going to be far more careful about the contracts they write up with their invited guests! I'm shocked at their stupidity of not realizing that he would make the speech in character. I'm most surprised that they invited him in the first place. This wasn't a roasting event, after all (although that's what it turned into)!

That's an interesting observation--that satirical shows are the most trustworthy. Now I'm miffed my classes are all over, because I would have loved to bring that up for discussion.
