Norm Macdonald's White House Correspondents Dinner

Although, thanks to the internet, Stephen Colbert's White House Correspondent's Dinner reached iconic heights of media saturation I'm certain that when Norm MacDonald hosted the dinner way back in the 90's during his stint as host of SNL's Weekend Update, if the internet had matured to the level it is now, that Norm's stint would have had equal impact. However thankfully it's been uploaded to Youtube in the last few weeks for all to enjoy now.

It's approx 20 minutes of a bevy of laughs from MacDonald where he basically turns the dinner into a Friar's Club Roast going after Clinton and everyone in the audience with his savage humour.

Case in point:

On PBS budget cuts: You can really see the cuts - The Frugal Gourmet has changed his name to "The Cheap Bastard".

p.s. Keep an eye out for presumed Democratic Senate candidate Al Franken in the audience enjoying the yuks.
