Late Night Humor

The White House blog today features a video of Stephen Colbert teeing up President Obama for his cameo appearance on Colbert's show last week, which Colbert filmed in Baghdad. In the taped cameo, after a little banter, Obama ordered Iraq commanding Gen. Ray Odierno to shave Colbert's head. Obama seems much warmer to Colbert than George W. Bush was.

In last night's show, a shorn and unbowed Colbert continued his coverage (see yesterday's Late Night Humor) of Obama's vile murder of a fly. "Of course the rest of the media...has been silent on this senseless killing," Colbert says. "Why am I the watchdog? Why am I the only one speaking out? Why am I alone?"
