The Colbert Column

When is a Maureen Dowd column best? Easy: When it's not written by Maureen Dowd.

Her column today was written by Stephen Colbert (or a team of his writers, but who's keeping track?), and it's a treat. First, there's this:
I'd like to thank Maureen Dowd for permitting/begging me to write her column today. As I type this, she's watching from an overstuffed divan, petting her prize Abyssinian and sipping a Dirty Cosmotinijito. Which reminds me: Before I get started, I have to take care of one other bit of business:

There. Now I've written Frank Rich's column too.
Then this:
And Fred Thompson. In my opinion "Law & Order" never sufficiently explained why the Manhattan D.A. had an accent like an Appalachian catfish wrestler.
Everything else is pretty funny, too. Read it.
