For President Obama‘s first official WHCA (White House Correspondents’ Assn.) dinner this coming Saturday, the headlining performer is set to be………drumroll please………Wanda Sykes? Really. Granted, there has been a bit of controversy surrounding recent performers, and I don’t expect anything to top Stephen Colbert‘s of 2006, but was there really no one else available? They’re playing it a little too safe. And besides, I never found Wanda Sykes funny at all. Obnoxious? A little bit.

We’re all aware of President Obama’s star power, and with the WHCA becoming more about celebrities than the press corps these days, I find it puzzling that they couldn’t convince anyone else to roast the President. Maybe there just isn’t anything to make fun of. I’m interested to see what they they’re focus will be on.

My guess is his dance moves.
