After watching the coverage by CNN of the Whitehouse Correspondent's Dinner, last night, I realized that the backup for the regular correspondents who were all at the dinner have a long way to go before they are ready for Prime Time. Led by Don Lemon, these 4 fell over each other trying to be uber cool. Then they called on Ben Stein who basically sat in another studio in L.A. and nicely pointed out in his curmudgeonly but to the point commentary, what a bunch of whiny, muddling, wannabes these 4 were trying to talk over each other with their failed one-up at any cost tactics.
Ben commented that Joel McHale's attempts at humor were lame and over the top but the 4 CNN correspondents sounded like a bunch of cackling hyenas as they backed McHale to the hilt because they would never want to end up backing Ben, the Old Fart.
All in all, it was great to watch Ben chew these 4 up without them even realizing how immature he was making them look. I must admit that Don Lemon got it toward the end but then at age 45, he should.
Before you younger readers dismiss the above as just the rantings of another Old Fart, it might be worthwhile to click the link and see why this country needs Old Farts. (Outside of the fact that if you are too nasty to us, we'll end up leaving your inheritances to Wildlife Foundations.)
