White House Correspondents Dinner

Does anyone know what, exactly, is the purpose of the White House Correspondents Dinner? Is it just journalists and celebrities hanging out being awesome together? Is it a fundraiser? A benefit? I’ve read about 5 descriptions now and they all just keep calling it “the Nerd Prom”. Helpful.

There’s a few sources that claim Rick Santorum was taking photos of Lindsay Lohan and the Kardashians… guess we dodged a bullet there!

Anyway, it sure makes for some great photos. I tried to sort out the pictures of those pesky journalists and politicians in the way of my favorite dresses – you’re welcome.
