Death to America

bushdinner.jpgAfter yesterday’s depressing post, what better way to clean the palate than video of Karl Rove showing Condi that he’s also got rhythm.

I’m probably the only Bush-hater who thought Stephen Colbert bombed at last year’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner.  In hindsight, I guess it worked as protest or performance art.  But I watched the live broadcast, and it wasn’t all that funny at the time.

Anyway, at the risk of getting all serious again, the entire premise of the dinner nauseates me.  The coziness is repulsive.  And the sheer excess and frivolity seems misplaced in the midst of the historic problems facing America.  If I want to laugh about them, I’ll go to the professionals at The Daily Show or The Onion.  But with soldiers dying every day, New Orleans in ruins, and the looming threat of eight years under Hilary, I’m hardly in the mood for jokes like this from the leader of the free world.

“A year ago my approval rating was in the 30s, my nominee for the Supreme Court had just withdrawn, and my vice president had shot someone. Ah, those were the good ol’ days.”

No shit.  Now get out.  And take David Gregory with you.

I’ve been unable to confirm if that’s Gregory the NBC White House correspondent dancing along with alleged political mastermind MC Rove.  But if it is, Lucy the Blog demands his resignation.  Attending this fiasco is one thing, but dancing with Karl Rove – and dancing like THAT – reduces your credibility to Jason Blair levels. 

In short, we’re doomed.

UPDATE: Apparently I got this one wrong.  Last night was the TV & Radio Correspondents’ Dinner, which is the little sister of the WH Correspondents’ Dinner.  The fact that there’s two of these things is doubly maddening.
