I spent a blissful Mother’s Day weekend unplugged and away from the news. So if you’re looking for outrage, faux outrage, and extended commentary on all the narcissism and nastiness at the White House Correspondents Dinner, you’ll have to look elsewhere.
In a nutshell: Liberal comedian Wanda Sykes indulged in Palin-bashing, Rush Derangement Syndrome, and post-Bush/Cheney-induced psychosis while leftist journalists rubbed elbows with politicos and Tinseltown eye candy. They all Twittered and tittered and Flickr-ed and snickered together at various D.C. before, during, and after-parties. (There’s even an entire fanboy/gossip site now devoted to the event).
It was the most self-absorbed night in Washington. Since the inaugural, I mean.
Which means the Beltway press corps will spend at least another 24 hours yakking about it.
