Washington Whimpers

Amidst all the huffing and puffing over Stephen Colbert's peformance at the White House Correspondents Association Dinner, I'm with Rem Reider of the American Journalism Review. It's time to shut down this silly dog and pony show.

I went to one similar event -- the 2001 Radio-Television Correspondents Association Dinner -- as a guest of CBS. What I remember is that Bush did a tired routine making fun of his own malapropisms, guest comedian Ben Stein was roundly panned for making a joke about Ronald Reagan's shooter -- John Hinckley -- on the 20th anniversary of that assassination attempt in the very hotel where it occurred. And a lot of people got smashed at the after parties. What a waste of a rented tux.
