LIVE THREAD White House Correspondent's Dinner 9:30pm

Posted on 05/04/2002 5:13:56 PM PDT by Hillary's Lovely Legs

The WHCA represents the White House press corps in its dealings with the administration on coverage-related issues.

A nine-member board of directors, elected by correspondents, addresses access to the chief executive; coverage arrangements; work space arrangements; logistics and costs for press travel to accompany a president on the road.

The WHCA also holds an annual dinner. The 2002 dinner will be held on May 4 at 9:30pm on C-Span. Drew Carey is the featured entertainment.

 

President Geprge Bush speaks at the 87th annual dinner of the White House Correspondents' Association April 28, 2001. Saturday Night Live comic Darrell Hammond was the featured entertainmnet, but Bush had the crowd laughing with his own family slide show.

Read about the 2001 dinner.

Drew's a little too full of himself tonight. And not at all funny.

I wish he had said, "You can tell it's her by the black pantsuit!"

Or the ankles.

My screen saver is Dubya waving. I like to see it every time I log on, but now I'm tempted Big Time to change to that Barney at the window pix.....it's precious.

President Bush's humor was so warm and funny and clean, the opposite of you know whose attempt to be funny.

I Think Carey is doing great! Esp. the bit with Dick Cheney. "I had had an angioplasty too..but they left MY heart in!" Cheney was laughing. "I'm glad you're laughing.. I have a family." LOL

He's getting better - when he was checking things off in Revelations - that was pretty funny.

Yeah, he's not that bad. I've never really cared for him, but he's basically decent filler. I suspect he's conservative, or at least he's patriotic.

It's all in bad taste, IMO. Hollywood/media people are NOT funny. Not one of them. I despise the press, celebrities, and everybody associated with them.

I would't want to follow Dubya's annual slideshow, that is the kiss of death for comedians-even Darell Hammond barely pulled it off last year and he is one of the funniest guys in sketch comedy (along with Will Ferell)

No, it seems that he has a genuine dislike of President Bush and it is making people uncomfortable.

"Ozzy Osborne...America's favorite dad....check."

Funny that Dubya's timing is better than the professional comedian, though.

Drew Carey supported Bush if I remember correctly. He also fought against the cigarette in bar ban in California. He isn't a typical Hollywood Liberal. He isn't on tonight, but oh well.

The Robert Blake Joke:

"Everyone is talking about where is Osama, we should get osama, well hey, it took us a year to get Robert Blake and he was in his apartment!"
