Posted on 04/26/2015 8:28:03 AM PDT by NOBO2012
The Nerd Prom is always highly anticipated around here. Will BOs joke writers be as good as Jon Stewarts? Will TOTUS scroll them slowly enough for Big Guy to read? Who will Lady M wear and will she make both the Best and Worst dressed lists? Although that anxiety has eased considerably with the passing of Joni.
So lets spend a few moments reviewing the transformation of Lady M at the annual White House Correspondents Dinner.
2009: before the discovery of industrial schtrenght Spanx:
Immortalized by Cripes Suzettes famous hump, slump, bump and plump shot:
H/T Cripes Suzette
2010: the age of elegance (and DOD spec Spanx)
2011: We try sexy, in a silk charmeuse on a wrestlers toned body and messy hair
2012: We attempt restraint in our multi-colored Joseph frock and lots of skin in the game.
2013: Basic black, plenty of that DOD Spanx and we go sultry and pouty, with bangs so you cant see our new boy brows
2014: WTF? Looks like the dresser didnt have time to finish so we just slapped on a big ring and headed out.
And this year, a brand new MO. New brows, new lips new hair and tons of filler and freezer; this year were going for a female Hispanic designation:
Or wait are we being punked? Again?
Ive got new eyebrows too.
Lets ask Johnny Weir, who also attended last nights festival of irrelevants:
Still vying for that Olympic Ice Queen medal
Butt lets face it, the press and the Hollywood celebs - who take up more seats at the dinner every year come to hear the carefully crafted jokes that Barrys little people write for him. And they never go home disappointed, as documented by CNN:
Of all recent presidents, Obama has taken humor closer to the hard-to-define threshold of what is appropriate coming from the mouth of a president
Obama's not just playing for laughs. There's something deeper going on. For a president who rarely loses his temper in public, the dinner offers a safety valve
Obama's is a brand of humor to match a polarized age where the stand-up gags of late-night hosts on broadcast TV seem tame compared to the satirical swipes of Comedy Central -- and when a veneer of good humored bipartisanship has long since been torn away
Former President Ronald Reagan once lobbed gentle one-liners at the White House Correspondents' Dinner like he was joshing show-biz pals at a roast or warming up the audience at the "The Tonight Show."
Three decades later, Obama's humor is more cruel, more personal and inherently more political.
All Presidents have made self-deprecating jokes at the Correspondents dinner to humanize themselves; butt interestingly, as Tucker Carlson points out, all of BOs self-deprecating remarks are aimed at somebody else. Cuz thats what makes malignant narcissists laugh.
Every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter. ― Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray
And speaking of Oscar Wilde, last nights winner of the Dorian Gray portrait award went to Jane Fonda, no contest.
Still able to fit into the Barbarella costume
Looking better now than the day she collaborated with the enemy which of course is what the Dorian Gray award is all about.

This alone nearly redeems the internet.
More like a tarp for her wide load!
I gotta go twerk now and puke...
What’s up with the poodle on her head?
Pee Wee Herman has a love child? Who knew?
Look at the hue of her skin. OMG, she’s going Michael Jackson!
Omg. Did she really have a lip job? Is Michelle Obama racist against blacks????
I thought the “Bucket” jokes were inappropriate. I also thought the cold looks he had between jokes were very telling. I did think he had a better writer than cicely. I used to think she was funny on SNL. She was horrible last night. And she showed herself to be absolutely hairy stinking butt stupid. Democrats Uber alles.
It doesn’t get much more flaming than that.
Flaming? He’s a nuclear pile about to go supercritical!
She looked really good in that red gown in 2010. Her face in 2015 looks like it belongs to a different person.
Wow! That pic of Bruce Jenner! How unladylike the way he’s sitting!
This year’s skin tone is the lightest yet.
Hmmm.... I had similar thread pulled last night that mocked the 1st Lady’s appearance.
Who dresses that monstrous woman? It’s like the pour expanding foam in a sack cloth. A woman with dozens of staff members (for doing nothing but mooching) should have one with a kid who will say “the empress needs new clothes.”
