Colbert, Zinging Again

One of the (few) comic highlights of the U.S. war in Iraq was Stephen Colbert's infamous demolition of President Bush, to his face, at that White House Correspondents Dinner.   Stephen is still in form at such events, as he proved last night at NY's annual Al Smith Dinner, which brings together top politicos, Catholics and media.  Some juicy barbs directed at everyone from his friend the Cardinal to Andrew Cuomo.  Examples:  On Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg: “Tiny, tiny man. The real reason he doesn’t want drink cups larger than 16 ounces is because he’s afraid he might drown in one.”  On Christine C. Quinn, the City Council speaker who lost the Democratic primary for mayor: “New York City is the only place in the world where the lesbian candidate is too conservative.”
