"I know that many you are aware that this dinner began almost 100 years ago as a way to celebrate the birthday of General Robert E. Lee," Obama said, referring to the man who commanded the Confederate army during the Civil War.

"If he were here with us tonight, the general would be 202 years old. And very confused."

From the same Dinner

Now, this hasn't been reported yet, but it was actually Rahm's idea to do the swearing-in ceremony again. Of course, for Rahm, every day is a swearing-in ceremony."

"But don't believe what you read. Rahm Emanuel (Obama's chief of staff) is a real sweetheart.

"No, it's true. Every week the guy takes a little time away to give back to the community. Just last week he was at a local school, teaching profanity to poor children."

• "But these are the kind of negotiations you have to deal with as president. In just the first few weeks, I've had to engage in some of the toughest diplomacy of my life. And that was just to keep my BlackBerry.

"I finally agreed to limit the number of people who could e-mail me. It's a very exclusive list. How exclusive?

"Everyone look at the person sitting on your left. Now look at the person sitting on your right. None of you have my e-mail address."

Looking to Joe Lieberman, the Democrat-turned-independent-turned McCain supporter, Obama told the Connecticut senator he had no hard feelings.

The door is always open, Obama assured Lieberman, who observes the Sabbath, so feel to drop by -- any Saturday afternoon.

To Palin, Obama expressed surprise to see her with such members of the Washington elite she railed against during the campaign. Or, as he termed it in language Palin is familiar with, "palling around with this crew."

Joe Lieberman

Lieberman, who also spoke, "noted that former vice president Richard B. Cheney injured himself while moving into his new home, according to a source inside the dinner. 'I had no idea waterboards were so heavy,' Lieberman quipped."

Christopher Bond

The incoming club president, Sen. Christopher S. Bond, R-Mo. reminded guests that a newspaper recently published a list of the 25 people most responsible for the global economic meltdown. "You know who you are," he said, according to the source. "And it's good to see you here tonight."

Awesome, you know I was afraid that there would be no more political humor now that George W. Dumbass wasn't tripping over words on a daily basis. But this is great :)

    • LOL. Well neither do you man- you're haphazardly speculating at best. I have vastly more evidence that Pryor would not be the starter and Mike Adams would First off: Mike Adams is better.  Second: Clearly the Panthers wanted Adams, probably going to start the guy they wanted.  Third: Mike Adams is a veteran presence just like the last successful guy to start at SS was for us: Harper: who would still be here if he had any gas left in the tank. The front office and coaches loved that veteran leadership he provided. Harper was starting games he had no business too- because our coaches loved how he positively helped our team. Guess who that replacement veteran leader is: Mike Adams.  Four: Calvin Pryor has been so bad the Jets are willing to give him up for "anything" and drafted safeties with their first and second round picks. That does not sound like the kind of guy that's out beating a consecutive Pro Bowl player.  Five: We already have a project safety on our team: Tre Boston   If you give up anything Pryor you have no idea how negotiations work in the first place. Jet's have no leverage here. Pryor is likely getting cut. 
    • blah blah blah our best WR who averages a 1,000 yards per season is a fat him A.S.A.P.! Swole Bones is going be a future HOF TE...just give him one more year to develop? huddle logic :)
