Sunday Funnies

Last night, President Obama attended the Gridiron Dinner in Washington, an annual occasion attended by Washington elites at which the powerful poke fun at themselves...usually. The President had a good routine, which brought laughter and applause from the crowd. A sampling of his jokes:
"As you may have heard, Bob [Woodward] invited Gene [Sperling] over to his place. And Bob says he actually thinks that I should make it too. And I might take him up on the offer. I mean, nothing says 'not a threat' like showing up at somebody’s house with guys with machine guns."

"Of course, maintaining credibility in this cynical atmosphere is harder than ever — incredibly challenging. My administration recently put out a photo of me skeet shooting and even that wasn’t enough for some people. Next week, we’re releasing a photo of me clinging to religion."

"With all these new faces, it’s hard to keep track of who is in, who is out. And I know it’s difficult for you guys as reporters. But I can offer you an easy way of remembering the new team. If [Texas Sen.] Ted Cruz calls somebody a communist, then you know they’re in my cabinet."
