out of character for me

So, I watched the Stephen Colbert roast of the president at the Correspondants' dinner, and I have to say, I kinda agree with these guys. It just didn't make me laugh all that much.

This is exceedingly weird, because normally I'll laugh at anything. I'm easily amused, I like bad movies, and I especially like Colbert's brand of sarcasm. Maybe I was surprised by the fact he was just regurgitating the same jokes (the ones I laughed at just fine... the first time) but it just didn't seem to really engage the president in attacks, just in some snarking.

Maybe I've just been talking to abce too much. *checks* Nope, still liberal. Just getting tired of seeing our side look dumb in the public eye. It's so often I read an article or see a demonstration and think to myself, "you're not helping!" :-/

I must be getting old.

(Backpedaling Edit: I only saw it once a few days ago, when I was in a bad mood. Maybe I should try watching it again. Can all these people be wrong, using phrases like "virtuoso performance"?)
