Obama's Crist Line Falls Flat at Correspondents' Dinner
You just knew that Charlie Crist would appear in a punch line during Obama's speech at the correspondents' dinner. It comes around the seven-minute mark of the video above. He and his speechwriters decided to merge that with a crack about the couple that crashed political parties last year. The text of the joke:
Odds are that the Salahis are here. There haven't been people that were more unwelcome at a party since Charlie Crist.As you can hear for yourself, the joke went over like the proverbial lead balloon, probably because it doesn't make sense. Crist didn't crash the Republican Party; it crashed him.
