White House Correspondent's Dinner: In Case You Missed It

SO, there has been a ton of news in the last 48 hours -- the vast majority of it surrounding the raid on, and death of Osama bin Laden. But, in all of the OBL kerfluffle, you might have missed the golden nuggets that came out of the White House Correspondent's Dinner.

First up, President Obama:



Then, SNL's Seth Myers:



The President's remarks were good -- not necessarily stellar -- but I especially liked the faux buddy-movie starring him and Vice President Biden. I would watch that (if it were real).

Myers' commentary was awesome. His best line, “Donald Trump said that he was running for president as a Republican. That’s funny, because I thought he was running as a joke.”

Needless to say, Trump took a pounding at the dinner. But, then again, he deserves it. WaPo's Jonathan Capehart tells The Donald how it is:
No, Mr. Trump. There was no one else to talk about and that was by your design. You wanted to play in the big leagues. Well, welcome to the game. In the world of politics -- and especially at that dinner -- you have to be able to laugh at yourself. None of the jokes told about Trump Saturday night were nearly as harsh as the lies he insisted on perpetuating that has led to the scrutiny and ridicule he’s now receiving. If he thought Saturday night was bad he hasn’t seen anything yet.
For all of the tut-tutting that Trump has been doing these past several weeks, the WHCD was a wake-up call for him. If he wants to run a legitimate presidential campaign, he needs to be able to take some heat as well as dish it out. His reactions to the dinner -- especially Seth Myers' portion -- tells me that he is not ready to run with the big dogs yet.
