A Year After Colbert: Little Bombs White House Dinner

A year watching Steven Colbert fillet the Bush administration at the White House Correspondents Dinner in Washington, we knew Colbert’s replacement, Rich Little, would be about as edgy as a butter knife. What we didn’t know: Little’s act would bomb like one. Which is, to a man, what everyone in the room said (except for Bush himself, who said Little was “absolutely perfect“).

FishbowlDC’s recap:

The whole thing made us feel that we were not at the White House Correspondents Dinner, but rather frozen in a 1970s moment … stuck in a basement somewhere with orange carpeting, flower patterned couches, wood paneling and a black and white television with rabbit ears.

In fact, the evening’s lone exciting moment came in the form of Sheryl Crow and Karl Rove, who got into a Lou Piniella-worthy argument over global warming between the tables. (Crow and Laurie David‘s take is here.)

    Looking for last-minute Valentine’s Day ideas for your significant, media-consuming other? Here are some can’t-miss picks:

  • Pink Roses with Hypericum, 20 stems | $59.99, Martha’s Flowers

    A Valentine’s Day standard. Plus, support Martha’s continued penitentiary comeback and brand-off with that pesky Rachael Ray. Classic!

  • My Bloody Valentine’s Loveless | $11.99, Amazon.com

    What Valentine’s Day would be complete without the 1991 shoegazer, white noise classic? All of them? Well, buy it anyway.

  • Trump Vodka | $38.00 for 750ml, Park Avenue Liquors

    Nothing says “You’re my Valentine” like a belligerent billionaire’s cocktail sauce.

  • Vincent Gallo | $50,000/day plus travel expenses

    The wack actor is not exactly shy about his, uh, manhood-for-hire ($1 million for Mr. Gallo’s sperm “includes all costs related to one attempt at an in-vitro fertilization” — c’mon, that’s a steal!). A perfect V-Day gift for that discerning starf*cker — literally!

  • Steven Colbert’s “Americone Dream” ice cream | Ben & Jerry’s

    Not yet available, but if you know the right people in Vermont like we do, the “vanilla ice cream with waffle cone pieces and a fudge swirl” is the perfect nightcap to a media Valentine’s Day. Rich, creamy and right-leaning.
