WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENTS ASSOCIATION: DON'T KNOCK THE PREZ
Comic impersonator Rich Little has been given instructions not to go after President Bush when he addresses the White House Correspondents' Dinner in late April.
According to the Las Vegas Review Journal, Little said event organizers told him they did not want a repeat of last year's appearance by comic Stephen Colbert, whose satire was apparantly not received very well. Therefore, the longtime comedian said he would "not even mention the word Iraq" and stick with his well known impersonations of the past six presidents.
You can bet there won't be any such restrictions when Little appears on February 7 at the Lakeland Center's Youkey Theatre. He'll be doing two shows, at 2:30 and 7:30 PM. If I can afford the $37 ticket, it'll be worth seeing.
