White House Correspondents' Dinner

Obama's opening:


Thought he still played it a little safe but oh well:


Overall I got a few nice chuckles out of it, and I'd say it's at least on par with last year's WHCD when Seth Meyers hosted.

Kimmel was quite good... poked deserved criticism at Obama, which Obama took like a man. Obama showed himself yet again to have a sharp wit.

Love the White House Correspondence Dinners!
