MC Rove and the Media Elites [VIDEO]

This time last year, Stephen Colbert was getting roasted for roasting Gee Dub at the annual gathering of the Washington press corpse. The 2007 annual dinner was held last night, and of course, McFlightsuit had some pithy words of wisdom and humor:

"A year ago my approval rating was in the 30s, my nominee for the Supreme Court had just withdrawn, and my vice president had shot someone," President Bush said Wednesday night during the annual gathering.
"Ah," he said, "those were the good ol' days."
But wait - there's more. You want to know why the elite Washington press corpse just can't seem to remove their suction cups from the Bush regime? It's events like the correspondent's dinner. Where else are you going to see something like this from Karl Rove? (Surgeon General's Warning: please - before viewing, have eyewash and brain bleach available.)

Must. Wash. Brain.
