Colbert: not dead yet

Well, Stephen Colbert hasn't turned up face-down in a bathtub yet, or been beaten to death with Sicilian Sluggers. So he has yet to join the ranks of Dr. David Kelly, the British scientist who accused the British government of having "sexed up" the intelligence on Iraq, who turned up dead in the woods several months after he predicted he would turn up dead in the woods if the UK were to invade Iraq, and Joseph Daniel "Danny" Casolaro, a muckraking reporter who was found dead in a hotel bathtub with his wrists slashed multiple times, all while he was in the middle of an investigation into an extremely convoluted apparent conspiracy of X-Files proportions. (This was a favorite mystery of my grandmother, and it has been included on some of the "Clinton Body Count" lists that claim to detail people killed at the behest of Governor and later President Bill Clinton.)

But, hey, give it time.

Word to the White House Correspondents' Association: maybe next time you should go with Larry The Cable Guy. The most controversial thing he's likely to say is "Git-R-Done." But don't take my word for it. Why not try doing a little research on the person you're bringing in to close the evening?
