Wow. Virginia politicians really suck at comedy.Politics

I don’t know if I’m supposed to laugh or cry. Perhaps I should cry laughing or laugh while crying.

Regardless, this report from the Richmond Times-Dispatch about last evening’s correspondents dinner left me, well, wishing I had the time back. So, doing like any good friend would, let me share the pain with you!

Check out these jokes as reported by Jim Nolan:

“I kind of feel like a guy who’s president of Tyson’s Chicken sitting down with the board of PETA,” said McDonnell, the outnumbered Republican candidate.

Deeds noted that McDonnell was leaving his government job in the spirit of moving Virginia forward.

“You know what?” Deeds said. “I couldn’t agree with you more.”

McAuliffe, the third to speak, noted he was considered a carpetbagger in Virginia politics.

“It’s great to be here with you tonight in Tallahassee,” he said. “Come on, folks, you know I’m kidding. I’ve always wanted to run for governor of New York.”

Moran suggested that if running for governor doesn’t work out, the three Democrats should take their show on the road.

“Creigh has been playing the violin since 2005,” referring to Deeds’ narrow loss to McDonnell in the attorney general’s race. “Terry likes to toot his own horn, and I want to beat Bob McDonnell like a drum.”

Don’t quit your day jobs, guys (Oh, wait, some of you already have…never mind)
