Making fun of Joe Biden's F-bomb of a few weeks ago, John McCain's maverick/non-maverick stance, and Jay Leno's Jay Leno-ness, President Barack Obama effortlessly rocked last night's annual White House Correspondents Dinner.
Other targets Obama good-naturedly took aim at included Scott Brown, Sarah Palin, Politico, Fox, CNN, the Jonas Brothers, and the Republican party.
"These jokes tonight were brought to you by Goldman Sachs," Obama announced at one point. "They make money whether we laugh or not."
Obama noted of McCain, who's recently been claiming he was never identified as a maverick -- and is facing a pretty tight fight for re-election in Arizona -- he said: "We know what happens in Arizona when you don't have an ID. ... Adios, amigos."
But perhaps his best lines were for Leno, the evening's guest speaker and, Obama said, "the only person whose ratings fell more than mine." He also expressed relief that he was going on before The Chin, as "We've all seen what happens when you take the time slot after Leno."
For his part, Leno did a routine that could have been written for Bob Hope any time during the past five decades.
