Obama, Conan Kill At White House Correspondents’ Dinner

+

Depending on who you ask, the White House Correspondents’ Dinner is either a night of glitz and glamor, where the D.C. press hobnobs with movie stars and the political elite, or a night of corruption, glad-handing, and venality, where the D.C. press hobnobs with movie stars and the political elite. Like everything else in D.C., the truth is, of course, somewhere in the middle. Most importantly for our purposes here, however, last night’s event served as a pleasant distraction from the real problems the country is facing, and, as usual, gave us a rare look at what it’s like when normally stressed out and staid public figures, like President Obama and Conan O’Brien, look like when they finally get a chance to be funny.
