Whitehouse Correspondents Dinner

One of the strangest things of any political year is the Whitehouse Correspondents dinner. It's a night when politicians including the President try their hand at comedy, in spite of the crumbling planet and the daily risign death tallies in the wars we're fighting abroad.

Having said that President Bush actually does an okay job at these things. Last night:
"A year ago my approval rating was in the 30s, my nominee for the Supreme Court had just withdrawn, and my vice president had shot someone," President Bush said Wednesday night during the annual gathering.

"Ah," he said, "those were the good ol' days."

More disturbing still is the picture of Karl Rove dancing along with the inocuous rap song being wipped up by members of the cast of
Who's Line Is It Anyway.
