Except for the Saddamite fascists and the Bush-must-die Democrats watching TV at home, Stephen Colbert missed the mark with most of his jokes at the White House Correspondent Dinner last night. But this one was a perfect shot:
“I believe that the government that governs best is a government that governs least, and by these standards we have set up a fabulous government in Iraq.”
Yeah, it’s biting, but it has enough truth that everyone can agree with, even the Iraqi parliament.
The best way to respond to such ridicule: Iraq’s elected leaders should complete their democratic government and start governing.
