Skip to comments.Nerd Prom: Embarrassingly Star-Struck Journalists and Uncomfortable Obama Dog-Eating Jokes

RUSH: Snerdley, do you still have your crush on Suzanne Malveaux? You're gonna have to deal with this. You're gonna have to do something about this. They had the White House Correspondents Dinner on Saturday night. There's a new name for this thing called The Nerd Prom. The Nerd Prom. That was one of the Twitter hashtags for the event. And that's quite apt, because politics, as I have often described it, is show biz for the ugly. And that's what the White House correspondents dinner was. It's their big Oscar night. It's where they all get together and it's a circle thing.
Suzanne Malveaux, you should see, somebody sent me her tweets. She was tweeting all night. I mean, I haven't seen -- if these were really her, and it looked like they were to me -- I haven't seen this kind of groupie-ism in years. I mean for rock stars, for anybody. She was totally enthralled being anywhere near Obama, in the same room with Obama, at all the parties after with the celebrities. In addition to compromising so-called journalistic objectivity, that's out the window with these tweets, it was beyond that. It was embarrassing.
I probably shouldn't say this, but I did. And I spoke for longer than seven seconds so we can't delay or bleep this. I don't have them here. I didn't print them out 'cause I promised myself I would not read them on the air, so I didn't print 'em out, give myself a chance to. But it was worse than... remember Nina Burleigh, does that name ring a bell? Nina Burleigh, TIME Magazine, back in the Clinton years, I think in Clinton's second term, promised to give Clinton a Lewinsky just for keeping abortion legal. Remember that? Remember her? Well, I mean, Suzanne Malveaux's stuff was not sexual, but good grief, it was just over the top. It was like high school. It was like being invited into the big clique. It was like her first time there, she's in the same room with Obama, she couldn't believe how cool he was. How cool it was to be in the same room with Obama. And I thought, hasn't this woman covered the White House in her career? I couldn't remember.
Anyway, Obama told dog-eating jokes. We had a portion of one of his autobiographies last week where he described eating dog growing up. That just makes me nervous. Dogs, pets, it just makes me nervous. But apparently not Obama. He can freely talk about eating dog in his autobiography, makes a joke about it. It's strange. You tell me if you think this is funny. I may be a lone wolf on this. This may be uproariously funny.
OBAMA: Sarah Palin is getting back into the game, guest hosting on the Today show. Which reminds me of an old saying. What's the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull? A pit bull is delicious. (laughter) Little soy sauce.
RUSH: What's the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull? A pit bull is delicious. So what does that mean you would do with a hockey mom? How could you compare flavors? But I don't know that that's what the audience is laughing at. I don't know. I just find the whole thing just a slight bit uncomfortable. I don't know. It could be just me. But it was highlighted, the dog-eating jokes were all over the place.
Was just downstairs in this Air Force building and heard the guy running the concession mini-mart talking with somebody and saying, “He didn’t have to do that, he was so nice - he’s loved all over the world, you know.” I turn to see what they’re talking about and there’s a photo of The One with a guy in overalls and an Air Force t-shirt. I held my tongue (solely because of my rank and the fact I’m in uniform at the moment), bought my cashews and tried not to puke as I left.
ON SUNDAY @ 8 am - I tired to get some REAL news by watching FOX NEWS - but there sat Juliet all dolled up in a little pink dress explaining to the viewers what a roast is...and playing clips from this tragic stupid little event...it was sickening...I guess they love it when they can dress up and play “important” while the rest of rest are working - trying to make a living now and in retirement - while they sit around and crack stupid jokes that don’t make sense - or steal ideas that one would see on Letterman...just one more reason why I hate this Administration, the US MEdia, and Hollywood!
Today’s IBD/Ramirez cartoon had Obama speaking in front of a banner reading
“A Dog in Every Pot”
At least Michael Vick didn't dine on Real Pit Bar-B-Q Bull dog.
And the Media jackasses all laughed at his dog eating story. Sick Freaks!
well cannibals actually eat humans, but dogs aren’t human, though some humans behave worse then dogs
And exactly where would that "old saying" have come from you classless, clueless, pathetic excuse for a human being?
They are delusional, aren’t they? He is an embarrassment and he has made the entire nation into a joke
Mods will sometimes allow ramirez to be posted, sometimes not.
You held your tongue better than most of us could.
Thank you for your Service!
