Can You Hear My Tiny Violin?

Via U.S. News & World Reports:

Comedy Central star Stephen Colbert's biting routine at the White House Correspondents Association dinner won a rare silent protest from Bush aides and supporters Saturday when several independently left before he finished.

"Colbert crossed the line," said one top Bush aide, who rushed out of the hotel as soon as Colbert finished. Another said that the president was visibly angered by the sharp lines that kept coming.

"I've been there before, and I can see that he is [angry]," said a former top aide. "He's got that look that he's ready to blow."

I've been in pretty much that state since Bush weaseled his way into the Oval Office. And if the most powerful man in the world gets "ready to blow" after a comedian portrays him in a bad light, I can't really think it's a good thing that he's the guy with his finger on the button. I mean, what if Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called him a stupid?
