WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Bush and top members of his administration mingled and shared laughs Saturday with Washington reporters, insiders and some outsiders -- including famed British rocker Ozzy Osbourne -- at this year's White House Correspondents dinner.
Comedian Drew Carey was on hand to provide the entertainment during the more than three-hour event, doing stand-up comedy for the president and more than 1,800 guests, from top White House adviser Karl Rove to hard rocker turned reality show star Ozzy Osbourne.

Are you mad that he was at a dinner party, or that Ozzy was there? Would it have been ok if he was yukking it up with Gordon Lightfoot?
You think it would have been better for Bush to have been the first president since before Calvin Coolidge to not have attended the dinner?
Of course MTV would drop him like a hot cake.
Damn Hippy! Hey Rammo, maybe Ozzy is a Commie too!

If you look at the photo I posted in # 3 it starts out by saying "Ozzy Osbourne (R) ... ". I thought "Wow, AP is now identifying celebrities by political party". But instead of the (R) meaning Republican, I'm sure it means that Ozzy is standing to the Right in the photo. :-)
New York Sen. Hillary Clinton (news - web sites) was also the object of Bush's humor when he showed a photograph of himself with a woman dressed in full-length blue burka and said it was the former first lady.
I'll tell you one thing, this whole charade of the correspondents dinner and Ozzy being there just goes to show you that life really does not matter to any of these schmucks. Like I said earlier, our boys are over fighting for our Freedoms and the shrub is partying it up with the likes of Ozzy Osborne and the MTV crowd, trying to appeal to all the young skulls full of mush. It won't work and this strategy is disgusting.
