That Would Have Been Awesome

From ex-Wonkette Ana Marie Cox' post about an Aspen event with Stephen Colbert:

The somewhat sour reception (to Colbert's famous White House Correspondents Association speech) only prompted one actual edit in the material. He had been planning on doing a bit where he talked about how journalists were always getting awards but "no one ever gives the President an award." So he printed up, and had with him at the podium, a "certificate of Presidency," which read, simply, "I, Stephen Colbert, recognize that George W. Bush is the President of the United States."

Realizing that the president seemed not to be enjoying things so much, he skipped that presentation, though at this point, I have to say, I don't think that necessarily made much of a difference.

If ONLY he forced the President to get up and give a fake smile and accept the award of acknowledgment. If only.
