The White House Correspondents Dinner
(Yes, The Blog is kicking the promised television commentary can down the road, again. As you have probably guessed by now, The PC is working on a run for Congress.)
The White House Correspondents Dinner.

The Blog just coined a new word, tonight.
That's right. That's mine.
Feel free to use it in conversation and correspondence.
No royalties will be charged.
But, if you can, give your old Uncle PC a tip 'o the hat when you use it.
