Presidential Humor and the White House Correspondents Dinner

This is perhaps my favorite annual presidential event. It is a way for the American public to see a different side of the Commander-in-Chief and a way for the President and White House correspondents to rub elbows.

President Barack Obama's performance was top notch:

Wanda Sykes did a nice job as the comedic act:

Sykes' performance was certainly less edgy, less bold, less cringe-worthy than Stephen Colbert's routine at the 2006 WHCA dinner with President George W. Bush at his side. Love it or hate it, Colbert's act was history-making and all comedic acts following will be better vetted to make sure that POTUS is not so directly in the bull's eye...
