President Obama At The Nerd Prom

Last night the White House Correspondents Association celebrated its 100th anniversary at the annual dinner reporters refer to as the Nerd Prom. CBS News reports on the president's speech:
Basking in the liberation of never again facing reelection, Mr. Obama aimed squarely at several likely 2016 prospects. Simultaneously ribbing the New Jersey governor's ill-famed scandal on the George Washington Bridge and the bumper-to-bumper partisanship that's locked down Washington, D.C., since 2010, the president joked that gridlock "has gotten so bad in this town - you've got to wonder, 'What did we do to piss off Chris Christie so bad?'" He also took stabs at tea party favorite Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., and the early Democratic front-runner, Hillary Clinton. "Let's face it, Fox, you will miss me when I'm gone," he said. "It will be harder to convince the American people that Hillary was born in Kenya." Chiming in one more dig to the cable network, he added: ''The Koch brothers bought a table here tonight, but as usual they used a shadowy right-wing organization as a front. Hello, Fox News!''
The clip below starts with a film starring Joe Biden, Michelle Obama, Nancy Pelosi, John Boehner, and Veep star Julia Louis-Dreyfuss.
