That Barack Obama is such a card. While it’s always an unsettling experience to watch our nation’s president crack wise about matters he’s supposed to be all serious about on the other 364 nights of the year, Obama managed to work in some zingers during his stand-up act at this year’s White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner on Saturday — about Joe Biden’s f-bomb, Jay Leno’s late-night fight with Conan O’Brien and Arizona’s scary new immigration law, among other ripped-from-the-headlines topics.

Oh, and he even gave a wink and a nod to the “birthers” out there in the viewing audience, although no doubt they’re kind of a tough crowd. –KA
