Obama Yucks It Up

Obama gets in a couple of pretty good bits at the White House Correspondents' Association dinner:

"I believe my next hundred days will be so successful that I will be able to complete them in 72 days," he said to a roar of laughter. "And on my 73rd day, I will rest."

His chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, Obama observed, always has a hard time on Mother's Day.

"He's not used to saying the word 'day' after 'mother,'" Obama said.

The chairman of Republican National Committee, Michael Steele, was "in the house tonight," Obama noted. "Or as he would say, 'In the heezy.'"

"Michael for the last time, the Republican Party does not qualify for a bailout," Obama told Steele. "Rush Limbaugh does not count as a troubled asset, I'm sorry."

Haw haw.

Update: Watch it via the Huffington Post. Awesome. Wassup!
