The yearly affront to democracy was held on Saturday night..

I’m of course referring to the White House Correspondent’s Dinner.  Once the media and the President were all done sucking each others butts, Barry had this to say:

During Saturday’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner, President Obama told the media they have a “responsibility to dig, and to question,” and “It has been an honor and a privilege to work side-by-side with you to strengthen our democracy.”

Yeah, the last 16 years have been just fabulous to the Republic.  But in a night filled with laughs, Barry got the biggest one at the end of his speech:

Obama told the press, “[I]t’s not enough just to give people a megaphone, and that’s why your power and your responsibility to dig, and to question, and to counter distortions and untruths is more important than ever. Taking a stand on behalf of what is true does not require you shedding your objectivity. In fact, it is the essence of good journalism.”

I can only assume the room literally exploded as everyone in attendance literally shit themselves violently in laughter.
