TVNewser: Ferguson scores at WH diner



mediabistro.com: TVNewser: "It may have been George W. Bush's final White House Correspondents' Association dinner as president, but Craig Ferguson stole the show. 3,000 people packed the ballroom at the Washington Hilton last night for the annual dinner, where Hollywood met Washington, with a stopover in Glasgow.

Unlike some past entertainers, the crowd warmed to Ferguson's performance. The Scottish-born comic took the requisite shots: Vice President Cheney 'is already moving out of his residence. It takes longer than you think to pack up an entire dungeon;' about the 'feud' between Bill O'Reilly and Keith Olbermann: 'What I see is sexual tension;' and at The New York Times who stayed away from this year's dinner: 'They felt that this event undercuts the credibility of the press. It's funny, you see, I thought that Jayson Blair and Judy Miller took care of that...Shut the hell up, New York Times, you sanctimonious whining jerks!'

Ferguson ended poignantly. Rolling up his speech and jamming it in his breast pocket, he spoke of the pride of becoming a U.S. citizen in February and what he loves most about Americans. 'Please, never, ever, ever agree with each other. Never stop arguing, never stop fighting. You cranky, magnificent bastards.'"

What a suck up! Is he Republican? Jeez. They should have brought in Rummy or Ashcroft. Those guys always made me laugh when they talked.
