No, not the Scarlett Johansson one, the White House Corespondents Dinner one. Folks on the right last year pretended not to notice that keynote speaker Stephen Colbert eviscerated their president to the delight of the half of America that had been waiting 5 years to see the slack brained frat boy get even a taste of what he deserved. But as much as they want people to think that drubbing was no big deal, they have gone out of their way to avoid even the outside chance that this year's dinner will produce a moment's discomfort for the insular one. On tap as this year's entertainment? Rich Little. No, I didn't know he was still alive either. But that leads me to my fantasy, wherein Rich Little realizes he has a chance to completely revitalize his career. For those not old enough to remember the guy Rich Little is known primarily for doing impressions, so what he does is secretly meet with Colbert and his writers to develop the speech Colbert would give if he had a chance at a second appearance. Little then steps out into a room full of politicians and journalists expecting to see a load of softball humor and delivers an absolutely withering routine in the voice of Steven Colbert, never once breaking character. The shock and discomfort in the room would be a sight to behold! Pure comedy gold! Meta-humor at its finest. A performance that would be talked about for years. Come on, Rich, do it. You could be a hero, a star.
Oh, and what the heck, here's a picture of Scarlett Johansson, too.
