I don’t think President Obama’s performance at last night’s White House Correspondents Dinner was his best, but he did have a few good lines. Here it is in case you haven’t seen it yet…

Comedian Conan O’Brien followed the president. I think Conan phoned it in. Definitely not up to his usual standard. It’s here if you want to watch.

Here’s video of President Obama’s remarks at last night’s White House Correspondents’ Association annual dinner. It’s the one speech of the year wherein the President gets to say what he really thinks. He did not go lightly on The Donald.

Seth Meyers was the comedic keynote speaker (this is fun to watch if only to see Donald Trump not laugh at the jokes about Donald Trump)…

In case you missed it, here’s Wanda Sykes at last night’s White House Correspondents’ Association dinner…

She was great!

Here’s the President, who did kind of alright himself…

(At least he didn’t make any jokes about WMDs hiding under his desk.)

UPDATE 05/12/09: The wingers are throwing one of their fake tantrums over Ms. Sykes’ remarks about their Dear Leader Rush. Digby gets to heart of it. Go read “Smelling Salt Alert.”
