Stuff we like

President Obama at last night's White House Correspondents' Dinner.

My favorite line of the evening was Obama's shot at the Huffington Post, "offering some sarcastic congratulations for its recent Pulitzer prize."
There’s no one else out there linking to the kind of hard-hitting journalism that the Huffington Post is linking to every single day. And you don’t pay them! That’s a great business model.
The president got off some other good lines including:
"Anyway, it’s great to be here this evening in the vast, magnificent Hilton ballroom — or what Mitt Romney would call a little fixer-upper."

"Our chaperone for the evening is Jimmy Kimmel, who is perfect for the job since most of tonight’s audience is in his key demographic — people who fall asleep during 'Nightline.'"

"Jimmy [Kimmel] got his start years ago on 'The Man Show.' In Washington, that’s what we call a congressional hearing on contraception."

"I have not seen 'The Hunger Games.' Not enough class warfare for me."

On Harvard degrees and Mitt Romney: "I have one, he has two. What a snob."
