Look, this whole "nerdprom" problem is very simple: All you self-loathing/self-obsessed D.C. media people who go to and/or talk about the White House Correspondents Dinner are not, technically speaking, "nerds." You are "tools."

Fuck the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner

Tomorrow evening, the cream of our nation’s mainstream media celebrities, political celebrities, and celebrity celebrities will put on tuxedos and evening gowns and gather in a ballroom in Washington, DC to mutually give one another handjobs, in a mostly metaphorical sense. This is because the most powerful elements of our nation’s DC press corps are all “on the same team” as the people they cover (politicians) and the people they idolize (celebrities). This is called the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner, and it is the single most revolting annual gathering of pseudojournalistic cocksuckery in all the land.
