The featured guest of this year's White House Correspondents' Dinner was late-night talk-show host Craig Ferguson, and although his act was less searing than Colbert's legendary roasting, he did manage to get some good shots in.

Seattle Times:

The Scottish-born Ferguson found middle ground between the tepid impersonations of last year's entertainer, Rich Little, and the merciless satire that Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert delivered in 2006.

Ferguson, who became a U.S. citizen in February, asked Bush what he was going to do after leaving office, then suggested, "You could look for a job with more vacation time." The president has drawn criticism for the amount of time he has spent away from the White House during his presidency.

Vice President Dick Cheney, Ferguson said, "is already moving out of his residence. It takes longer than you think to pack up an entire dungeon."

I wonder if Ferguson held back a bit out of fear his newly-gained citizenship would be revoked?
