Jimmy Kimmel at the 2012 White House Correspondents’ Dinner

Highlights

0:00  Unnecessary Censorship: Crass, brash and crude, a Jimmy Kimmel trademark and a great way to kick things off.

3:36  Michelle Obama’s reaction to ‘big ear joke.’  Awesome.

5:40  Mark this Obama smile, this is the ‘oh, f*ck you’ smile.

7:40  Chris Christie fat jokes. Hey, everyone loves a good fat joke (and by the looks of it, that includes Chris Christie).

10:15 “…the people who watch Bill Maher know he’s an asshole.”  Yep, that’s me.

10:50  First groaner, with the hackneyed newspaper joke (yikes).

15:20  WHAT!?!?!?  Sully Sullenberger  is still a person?  I mean, don’t get me wrong I hailed the guy as much as anyone for being an American Hero, but what has the guy done lately, he’s like the Baha Men of American Heroes (and talking about the Baha Men).

15:58  Barbara is not pleased.  First Trumpian moment of the night.

19:29  Remember that, ‘oh, f*ck you’ smile from before, well this is Obama’s “that was funny” laugh, how do I know?  Because he mouths it directly after.

19:39  We can’t really see his face, but I can assume Gingrich gives us our second Trumpian moment of the night.

25:15  “Some people say journalism is in decline.  They say you’ve become to politicized, to focused on sensationalism, they say you no longer honor your duty to inform America, but instead actively try to divide us, so that your corporate overlords can rake in in profits. I don’t have a joke for this, I’m just letting you know what some people say.”  I couldn’t say it better myself.

Final Grade: B+
