Perhaps you were on the Internet lately while the White House Correspondents Association worked itself into a frenzied moan of TRANZPARENCEEEEEEEEY about the truly important issue of the day: that dastardly Nobumer wouldn’t let them take pictures of his golf round with Tiger Woods.

NPR REPORTERS WILL NOT HAVE TO WIPE GIBBS-SPITTLE OFF OF THEIR HIPSTER BUDDY HOLLY GLASSES: “Newsertainment” organization Fox has been assigned Helen Thomas’s old front-row seat in the fetid White House press room by the WHCA. This means that they will have the power to set the national agenda, because Robert Gibbs will actually be [...]

Good morning! Let’s start the day with a look at the ol’ POLITICO top stories e-mail… oh dear sweet jesus god.
HAHAHHAA OH MAN, HERE’S YOUR NIGHTCAP OF HORROR! Of course they did this! STAB and TWIST and KILL the hippies! “The White House Correspondents’ Association plans to announce Friday morning that Jay Leno will headline their annual pols-stars-and-reporters dinner on May 1.” Your editor’s urge to just drive the motherfuck as far away from this [...]
While we do not condone presidential participation in the idiot follies of the White House Correspondents Association Dinner, which should end each year with the detonation of a dozen limo bombs, we have not run any photos this year of the president having diplomatic talks with a comical pirate, so here it is.
