What Made Me Laugh: President Obama at the National Correspondents Dinner

That's right! The President of the United States made me laugh this week.

On Saturday, May 1, I watched the National Correspondents Dinner on TV. The dinner is notable as each year the president of the United States gives a lighthearted, "humorous" speech, and is followed by a monologue from a notable comedian. This year, Obama was followed by Jay Leno, but I think Obama stole the show. If you haven't seen it yet, you can watch the speech below.


My favorite highlights were:
  • Obama's opening Joe Biden joke. "This is a big (bleep)-ing meal."
  • "I still happen to know that my approval ratings are very high in the country of my birth."
  • And Obama's jab at not wanting to follow Jay Leno.
I think that if Obama isn't re-elected in 2012, he may have a career in late night comedy. Jimmy Fallon, I'm looking at your time slot.
