Top of the charts: Stephen Colbert
To hear many critics in the mainstream media tell it, comedian Stephen Colbert bombed at that White House Correspondents dinner earlier this month. It was hard to know when to laugh when the jokes were on George, who was present but unamused. Many of them declared that Bush's own comedy routine—done of course with the assistance of a comedian—got far more laughs than Colbert's and was in fact much funnier.
But according to Editor & Publisher, the audio recording of Colbert's routine is the #1 album at iTunes, "beating out new releases from Pearl Jam, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Paul Simon."
For $1.95 you can download it here.
No word yet on how well Bush's routine is selling.
