citizen X started the first live blog of the 2009 White House Correspondents' Dinner.
Live from Washington D.C. the annual droolfest known as the White House Correspondents' Dinner is taking place.
The banquet is being broadcast on C-Span and MSNBC and also online at c-span.org and cnn.com/live.
The main program starts at 9:40PM Eastern.
Michelle Obama presents scholarships at 9:50PM Eastern.
President Obama is scheduled for 10:10PM.
Wanda Sykes is scheduled for 10:25PM Eastern.
Dinner is Petite Fillet with Sundried Tomatoes. No dessert so they could use the $13,000 saved for scholarships.
2006 was the best year ever. The classic Colbert roast of President Bush is on youtube here -- but really it's the media he takes apart best.
