I didn't bother to watch President Obama's speech at the White House Correspondents' Dinner. However, I did catch wind of this lame attempt at humor. He took a swipe at Sarah Palin by making light of his taste for dog meat. Apparently, he thinks Pit Bulls are "delicious," or something.
The joke went over like a lead balloon. Even Michelle Obama looked perplexed by it. Here's another gem from his speech as reported by Politico.
"As my stepfather always told me, 'It's a boy-eat-dog world out there.'"
His campaign is clearly worried about the buzz around his dog eating past. I don't think this will help make the story go away, and I suspect his speechwriter will be looking for another job on Monday.
Here's the clip of the "Pit Bulls are delicious" remark.
