Ten Minutes Until Nerd Prom

Us non DC A-listers will be able to watch the White House Correspondents' Dinner tonight at 8pm EST on CSPAN. Reasons to watch include:

Comedian-in-Chief Wanda Sykes. Past hosts have used this night as an opportunity to hit the POTUS with major grease. Tonight, Sykes is going to have to figure out how to roast the notoriously difficult to gig on President Poutier without pulling any punches.

Michelle's dress. Sleeves in DC are so yesterday.

Obama will get a chance to make fun of the press that covers him and I love when he does that dry little laugh to himself.

And is CSPAN covering the red carpet? Because in that case, we might catch a glimpse of Ed Westwick sucking it in and striking a pose.
