The Village Times






Stephen Colbert





Evicted notice


Date of Eviction: May 2006

Statement: While no one appreciates a good joke or two as much as we Villagers, sometimes humor can cross the line into bad taste. Case in point: Stephen Colbert's performance at the 2006 White House Correspondents' Association Dinner. Here's what some Villagers had to say about Mr. Colbert's work that night:


“Lame and insulting.” R. Cohen, Washington

“Crossed the line.” S. Hoyer, Washington

“Predictable, Bush-bashing kind of humor.” M. Matalin, Washington


We agree. The correspondents' dinner is a place for jokes about drone strikes and missing Weapons of Mass Destruction; not for cheap shots at the media. Therefore, we regretfully expunge Mr. Colbert from the Village.
