Oh, Dan!

I was waiting for Dan Froomkin's review of the Press Corpse Dinner (this Daily Kos review does the bold type thing so I don't have to).

I thought it would be hard for Froomkin to pull together media stories on Colbert's performance, because the media was busy pretending it never happened. Turns out Froomkin was right there in person.

Sadly, though, Froomkin did not have the cojones of Colbert when he came face to face with his arch nemesis, Karl Rove. And he spent the whole dinner sitting next to another Bush apparatchik but failed to grill her on Iran and other topics, even though he was dying to.

Why the silence? Because asking the hard questions in a setting like this "wouldn't have been appropriate." Sigh...
