Palin to skip White House Correspondents Dinner

###

JUNEAU, Alaska – Flooding in her home state has forced Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to cancel an appearance at the White House Correspondents Dinner.

Palin told reporters Thursday that she would skip her planned East Coast trip so she could visit parts of Alaska that have been struggling with the most serious flooding in decades.

*snip*

The governor’s husband, Todd Palin, planned to take her place at both the dinner and New York event.

This appears to be the live thread for tonight's White House Correspondents Dinner.

C-SPAN.org says speeches (and jokes) will start around 9:40pm ET.

To that hearty band of FReepers standing outside the WHCA Dinner venue: THANK YOU and we hope you're having fun! :o)

Thanks but I think I knew 2 of them but was not sure about Gibbs. Evidently, I do not watch any news shows, either. I will stick with TAPS, and all of the other paranormal shows. They make more sense than the news shows or anything else on regular tv.

If you’re watching CSPAN with the Politics
and Comedy segment while the critters eat
their press dinners, one of the panelists,
a femail writer for the West Wing, actually
said:

“I feel like I’ve died and gone to heaven
with this man and this administration.”

We truly are living in an alternative universe.
God help us all.

With a disgusted look, the Kenyan doesn't even make the effort to put his hand over his 'heart'. I don't think Ewing is too happy either
