The Word: Buzz

The Editor & Publisher article that Zack posted about Stephen Colbert's speech at the White House Correspondent Dinner has become one of the most read articles to date for that publication, garnering over 100 letters (E&P published several of them today).

While there have been negative reviews of Colbert's scathing speech, there have also been numerous signs of approval online, such as Thank You Steven Colbert, which has received more than 13,000 "thanks" so far.

All this buzz, despite attempts by the mainstream media to bury Colbert's speech (Peter Daou and Chris Durang have written excellent pieces on the media's non-coverage.) To me, it signifies that Colbert has finally arrived--and that two Bushes are far worse than one.
