The NYT on this video writes:
thelede.blogs.nytimes.com/2008 ...

<<President Bush has turned up on the popular Internet site singing an off-key spoof of “The Green Green Grass of Home,” which he performed Saturday night at the supposedly off-the-record Gridiron Club dinner in Washington.

The Gridiron, for those unschooled in the ways of Washington, is the city’s oldest journalistic organization, and is best known for its annual invitation-only dinner, which brings together the government and media elite.

(...)

Not everyone thought it was funny. Chris Matthews, the host of the MSNBC program “Hardball,” lambasted reporters the other night for yukking it up with Mr. Bush.

“Nothing funny about a war fought for bad intelligence and a top aide, Scooter Libby, who committed perjury and obstruction of justice to cover it up,’’ Mr. Matthews said. “Nothing funny about a president who commuted that sentence to keep the cover-up protected. Otherwise, I’m sure it was an enjoyable get-together between journalists and the people they’re charged with covering.’’>>
