Very good. Thanks for the laugh.
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats

Too funny. I'm also enjoying the apoplectic reactions that the Fox News talking heads are faking in order to get America's grandpas riled up over this. Or, I should say, I would be enjoying that if I were watching Fox News today.

I guess I did not 'get' it. And at over five minutes, the bit seemed overly stretched to me.

Besides the brief "Game of Thrones" reference, I didn't think "Luther" was funny at all.

Different strokes for different folks, I guess. I thought it was hysterical. (As is the reaction from Fox)

Well the hypocrisy aside it was funny. But taking shots at old white people and Lily white and that. Have to wonder if a white president took shots at other racial groups if it would be so funny?

I thought the "you don't have Ebola" line was hilarious.

I think this will do more to divide than unite people. From those who scream for political correctness the loudest. Ironic if you ask me.

I don't have my former healthcare plan, which I liked, either!

Guess they forgot to tell Bill Buckley.

I bought it wasn't bad, fwiw. I think the event is fun each year. It's the one day where it's all a goof.

I have to say the part where he gets to be angry he delivered very well. I do have to compliment him on that acting bit.

Surprisingly, at least it was to me, it is more than just one day, "it's four full days of signature cocktails and inside jokes".

Some bits I found noteworthy:

"why ... does the Association only dole out around $100,000 in scholarships annually when some of the richest people in the world are at their dinner?"

"Everywhere you look there are parties glomming onto the WHCA dinner by trying to squeeze under the umbrella of White House correspondents ... none of them actually donate to the WHCA's scholarship program"

"half of the Association's annual outlays go to its executive director ... [often] the executive director gets paid more than gets doled out in scholarships"

Point 7 in the article (about the celebrities) was especially amusing to me.
