Colbert Loves the Bushies

Steven Colbert proves he isn't a jerk--he just plays one on TV.

Colbert plays nice in this interview with CNN's Soledad O'Brien. O'Brien asks Colbert about the scathing speech he made at the White House Correspondents Dinner. Colbert's clever Bush-bashing earned him both kudos and criticism, and got plenty of TV coverage. However, Colbert reigns in his biting wit and gushes about the Bush administration, saying Tony Snow was "very nice," and claiming that President Bush 'could not have been nicer to my mom.' He sums up his experience as a 'really great time.'

Maybe he was just being docile because he wants everyone to go see his movie?
