This is awesome stuff. Not been out to get the paper yet, wonder if it has made it into the UK Sundays. Metafilter discussion with more links (including to the video) here.

Yes, some great gags there, though the press just seems to have covered the Bush double routine. Mind you, if you're a liberal US comedian, it can't be hard to find material at the moment.

Yeah it's odd that the UK press have reported the event in terms of a comedic triumph for President Bush. It's not like they're giving the UK administration an easy ride at the moment...
