Teh Won thinks he's funny.....

The White House Correspondents' dinner was last night.  This morning, the media are crowing over Teh Won's funnies at the expense of Donald Trump.  Now I really don't give a fig about Trump, but am under the impression that one of the dinner's purposes was much like a roast, with the President on the hot seat.  Since Teh Won has absolutely no self-reflection or any sense of humor when it comes to being lampooned, of course, he used his bully pulpit as yet another kickoff for his next campaign and to attack and denigrate his opponents, much like he used his first State of the Union address to slam the Supreme Court.

The man is increasing pathetic.  He says that everyone needs to get back to working on what's important but I'm not sure how he's going to fit in the budget and gasoline prices and food prices and all of the important issues into his social calendar and jetting around the country (on our dime, mind you) collecting money for his next re-election campaign.

ETA:  the White House still has no official comment on the news that NATO air strikes have killed the son and three grandchildren of Khaddafi in Libya.

I too have always thought these dinners' targets of "humor" was supposed to be the media and the president. I've watched bits of previous roasts and Bush II had a very sharp self-deprecating style.

You're right - His Oneliness is off limits.

The one thing that struck me was that someone (probably a paid staffer) created a video which contained the copyrighted Disney Lion King. Yep, they really are focusing on today's problems.

The other was that the jokes were flat and unoriginal. And the bubble-head on the Sunday morning show was all giddy. Really? Dean Martin was king of the roasts and these cut-outs wouldn't even get to the podium.

I wouldn't have thought that there would have been room enough for both the journalists and Obama's Ego at the event.

Stranded--that's what I couldn't understand this morning. The press was all a quiver over the 'cleverness' and I just saw lameness. Martin would eat them for lunch BEFORE bringing in Don Rickles.

Borepatch-- Me either... :-) The arrogance for both the press and Obama is just staggering.
