Saturday night marked the annual comedy fest known as the White House Correspondents Dinner, at which politicians, alleged journalists, and the Hollywood elite gather to make jokes about how desperately effed up our country is.
Sadly, the evening's emcee, Conan O'Brien, did not mention Benghazi while dishing out roast-style jokes (nor did anyone else). If Hope n' Change had a turn at the podium, we'd have said something like: "A lot of people were bugged that Obama sent out a self-serving publicity photo of his big Moment of Silence for the victims in Boston, but it's really not that big a deal. After all, he's been silent on the victims in Benghazi for seven months!"
(Crowd boos, Secret Service rushes the stage, Guantanamo Bay prisoners soon greet a new guy wearing a sticker that says "Hi! My Name Is Stilton!")
Obama himself told plenty of jokes because, after all, he can't stay sad about a little thing like a successful terrorist attack on American soil forever (especially after being feted by the feticidal folks at Planned Parenthood).
He even joked about being Muslim, which is especially funny since his Administration (via Eric Holder) sent a Federal judge to stop the FBI questioning of the surviving Boston bomber, read him his Miranda rights, and assign him a legal defense team - thereby assuring that if there is a larger radical Islamic terror connection, the American people will never hear about it. Yeah, B. Hussein - this is a hilarious time to make Muslim jokes.
Hope n' Change certainly understands the importance of humor in tough times, but the people who have created the problems, or are charged with solving them, shouldn't be doing the laughing because it's at our expense. Literally and figuratively. It shows that they don't take the problems seriously... and that, in itself, is a serious problem.
As for the "journalists" who claim to represent the American people in finding and reporting the truth, they need to spend less time drinking champagne with politicians and celebrities, and more time learning how to get their hands dirty with something other than circle jerks.
Before anyone complains about this cartoon, remember that it's not as bad
as the REAL dump Barry took on the late Lady Thatcher by snubbing her funeral.
