White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

US President Barack Obama (2nd L) shakes hands with White House Correspondents’ Association Secretary Peter Maer of CBS News as First Lady Michelle Obama (2nd R) chats with comic actress Wanda Sykes during the White House Correspondents� Association annual dinner on May 9, 2009 at the Washington Hilton hotel in Washington.

President Obama, playing the comic-in-chief, had the celebrity-packed crowd at the White House Correspondents’ dinner rolling out of their seats Saturday night as he skewered Republicans, Vice President Biden and even Hizzoner.

“In the next hundred days, I will meet with a leader who rules over millions with an iron fist, who owns the airwaves and uses his power to crush all who would challenge his authority in the ballot box,” Obama said, before pausing.
