Stephen Colbert at the White House Correspondents Association Dinner

YouTube has videos of Stephen Colbert hosting the White House Correspondents Association Dinner: one, two, three (it's presented in three parts). Update: YouTube removed the videos for copyright infringement. But you can watch the video (streaming RealPlayer link) on CSPAN's site. Colbert plays the same character at the dinner as he plays on his show. And it's devastating. While the crowd can't laugh for fear of jeopardizing their careers, we were howling on the couch.

Props to Crooked Timber for the best blog post title: Speaking Truthiness to Power.

Update: Distler joins the Colbert like-fest adding a downloadable clip of an interview with Kristol, the editor of The Weekly Standard.
