Nerd Prom! Who's cares? These people!

Washington, DC, often referred to as "Hollywood for ugly people," will get a taste of the real LA deal tomorrow night for the White House Correspondents' Dinner, aka: #NerdProm. The event has too many A List stars attending to list here. There are so many of them that some veteran reporters who cover the White House, from outlets as influential as the Washington Post, have been denied tickets so more non-correspondents can attend. Who's watching this year?
Political junkies: For the tens of people who have been glued to their TVs and iPads, scouring Politico and DVRing the film “Game Change,” the last week has been tough. As Mitt Romney finally seemed to have taken the GOP nomination, the decrease in political coverage has left many realizing just how empty their lives are as vast amounts of time have been freed up to finally leave the house and interact with people in person. Addiction experts were encouraged by the interest in the event. "To drop from the level of coverage we've had to nearly nothing may be too much for most of the political junkies. When we detox alcoholics, we never let them go cold turkey," addiction expert Marjorie Reynolds told reporters.
None of the Duggars: Reality TV's biggest family doesn't have a TV set, but if they did, they would boycott the show due to what matriarch and mother of 19 children Michelle Duggar calls "Obama's war on children." "If you really look at Obama's policies on everything from the environment to the tax code, he clearly does not like children," she recently told reporters. "Did you know that the entire population of the planet could fit within the city limits of Jacksonville, Florida? It's true! How can there be a a problem with overpopulation when that is true?" (Note to Mrs. Duggar: The population of the Earth is seven billion people)
Karl Rove: Founder of the super PAC American Crossroads, the former Bush advisor has been running ads that say President Obama's star power is proving to be a drain on the economy. An event that combines the geekiest Washington insiders with the crème de la crème of Hollywood will provide too many pictures and literally hours of video that can be used to make his point.
Extraterrestrials: NASA confirmed space aliens have been tuning in to the US presidential campaign. "We never expected this campaign to inspire so many life forms not based on Earth," said SETI chief Cooper Rugaber. "We think Michele Bachmann is the reason. It was pretty clear to us when she gave the Tea Party response to the State of the Union last year that she was clearly not from this planet. We further believe that she was using the 'Tea Party' camera to communicate with others from her home planet. Right after that we made our first contact with an alien! It was AMAZING!" Experts worry this could spell doom for Earth. "What scares me is that asteroid that's been so menacing. What if it watches and becomes more enrages it? When it sees George Clooney hobnobbing with the President, it will remember the Obama campaign has yet to comp it some tix to the Clooney love fest/fundraiser," said rocket scientist Rob Murphy told reporters, "We don't want to give even one half of one idea about another reason to hit our planet and kill off every living thing on it. We don't want to join the dinosaurs." - Return to Previous Page
