Jimmy Valentine's brother pays tribute to Doctor Raoul, WHCA Dinner 2013
It's that time of year again when the elite of Washington gather to party at the coolest high school prom for grown ups in the country: the White House Correspondents Dinner.
As we have been doing since 1999, FReepers will gather outside to let the media know our opinion of their work.

This FReep is your chance to tell reporters, editors and media executives face to face how their reporting hurts or helps the country. You will also have the chance to tell politicians and politicos how their efforts hurt or help the country.

When: 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday, May 3, 2014.
Where: Across from the Washington Hilton, the southeast corner of Connecticut Avenue and T Street, NW, Washington, D.C.
Closest Metro stop: Dupont Circle (north exit) on the Red Line.
Parking: Garage parking off Florida Avenue just east of Connecticut or at the Hilton. Limited street parking available.
Signs: Please keep sign messages focused on the media's liberal bias and the media's protection of the Obama administration. Last year was a cacophony of signage that diluted the message we were trying to communicate. Also, please put FreeRepublic.com in prominent lettering at the bottom of your signs.
After the freep we will head inside the Hilton for our traditional post-freep dinner.
As always, the D.C. Chapter's rules for protesting will be in effect. Briefly, they are: No violence, no profanity, no racism, no provocations, obey the law and treat all law enforcement officers with respect.
The White House Correspondents Association is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year.
Today the WHCA announced the reporters to be honored at the dinner.

D.C. Chapter mega ping!
be there of be square...or real real busy...
I would absolutely love to be at this Freep-—but I just can’t make it up there this year.
I get all teary eyed thinking about Doctor Raoul .I still have trouble believing that he has gone to his reward. God rest his immortal soul.
Kristinn, will you be there? Does Angelwood still participate?
The good old days were fun with Connie Hair, and many others who are no longer freeping.
Wish we could be there, but will be in spirit! Big ping here to Freepers in MD and VA!
I plan to be there. Raoul had many great times at this freep over the years. Not sure if Angelwood will make it. CaL will not.
Y’all come, hear?
Please put me on any FREEP-mail update lists...
Thanks for the ping. Wish you could be there.
Terrific! We’ll see you there. All updates, if any, will be on this thread.
Would love nothing more than to attend. We have a wedding we have to attend that weekend, way out west :(
A serious gathering of FReepers is indeed due!
Thats what I meant...although I probably didnt say as much..
Think May 16 - - - .
I’ll be in DC on May 16th. But not by the 3rd.
Possibly I will get to meet some of the DC chapter during the Week of the 16th.
Look up FReeper kristinn as he is the founder and high muckety-muck of the DC Chapter.
Wow that time of year already? Marked on my calendar. Devil will probably not attend but I’ll be front and center. I believe Clinton’s a liar freeps every day on Capitol Hill.
Mr. Trooprally is your best regular contact these days as I'm not around much.
See you then.
I stand corrected My apologizes to all. Thanks for the correction.
Re your link about the afterparty, note who they consider to be the big draws to the party:
“. . . the fete has always stayed close to the Washington Hilton near Dupont Circle to keep celebs exposure to the crowds short and walking in heels to a minimum. . . .[Even with the change of location], a chance to rub elbows with Clooney and Carney guarantees that anyone who gets an invite will make the trek.”
Don’t think I’ll be able to make it but I’ve always admired and enjoyed the creativity of the DC Chapter.
Thanks for the notice. We’ll try to make it this year.
Unfortunately, it looks like I’m going to be tied up that weekend. Wish I could make it.
We’ll miss seeing you. Thanks for letting us know.
Give 'em heck!
nutmeg & zelig
Amen to that, basil.
Gee Jon Stewart, who according to Jay Carney did the toughest Obammy election year interview, receives no recognition.
Got my basic load of truth ready. See you there dudes and dudettes.
I surely do wish I could be there, Kristinn.
Y’all FReepmem good for me and the other FReepers who can’t be there in person.
I look forward to the AAR and photos.
There’s some guy making a documentary about the WHCA dinner. So be on the look-out and have fun!
Wish we could meet again!
Just too many miles for a one-day trip.
I hope there will be pictures and after action report!
See you tonight.
Nutmeg and Zelig, hopefully next year.
This dudette can’t be there either, and it bothers me so, as if there was a time to get back at the $&@£%# press! it is now!!
Mr.Exit and daughter are still recovering from surgery, ( and MRSA), so I can’t leave, but I will follow closely. And when you see some of those in the press who got us into this mess, please give it to them for me ——— but laud the good guys and gals!
