    and deliver a comedic speech in front of such a hostile audience.  Colbert knew his true audience was elsewhere, but still, it's human nature to react to an uncomftorable, unamused audience.

      When you could see Colbert sweating it a bit. There was nervousness there particularly when aiming the barbs directly at Bush and to his face. I do 't know who wouldn't have been. But Colbert was much more at ease as he went after the media and Scalia.
