For the past 96 years, the White House Correspondent’s Association has held an annual dinner. At first, the feast was just a night of entertainment and celebration. Over the past several decades, however, the main goal of the dinner has been to raise money for journalism scholarships. This year, 17 students will receive $132,000 in college scholarships.
Sounds nice, right? Well, guess who’s coming to dinner. None other than Urchin nemesis Judd Crapatow and his wife, Star of All His Movies. Even worse? He’s the guest of David Remnick, Editor-in-Chief of The New Yorker. Ah humanity!
But really, we should have seen this coming. According to the WHCA, the annual dinner was “men only” until 1962, even though women were members of the Association. It took JFK saying he would boycott the dinner unless women could attend to make these turds change their rules. So it would seem that Mr. Crappy and the WHCA are really sexist peas in a crass pod. Of course the WHCA would want the company of the writer/director of such mancentric films as She’s Way Too Good for Your Scrub Ass and Let’s Market a Movie About Drugs to Teenagers. But what exactly is David Remnick’s excuse? I just hope he has three tickets, because you know Seth Rogan is coming too.
