Obama joked about the colloquial term for the WCDA dinner, “nerd prom,” – “a term coined by political reporters who clearly never had the chance to go to an actual prom.”
Obama also took a jab at Arianna Huffington’s Huffington Post. “Plenty of journalists are here tonight,” said Obama. “I’d be remise if I did not congratulate the Huffington Post on their Pulitzer Prize. You deserve it Arianna. There is no one else out there linking to the kinds of hard hitting journalism that HufPo is linking to every single day.” He continued, “and you don’t pay them. It’s a great business model.”
Obama also mocked himself over recent jokes in conservative circles that he had consumed dog meat as a child in Indonesia. Invoking Sarah Palin’s famous 2008 Republican National Convention speech, Obama joked “what is the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull? A pit bull is delicious.”
Obama addressed his likely Republican rival, Mitt Romney, once again. “We both have degrees from Harvard,” said Obama. “I have one. He has two… What a snob.”
Obama closed by mocking his opponents who say the president harbors a radical agenda for a second term. “In my second term, I will win the war on Christmas,” said Obama. “In my first term we repealed the law known as Don’t Ask, Don’t tell. In my second term, we will replace it with a policy known as ‘It’s Raining Men.”
Do watch the whole thing, it's POTUS at his best.
