End the White House Correspondents' Dinner

A couple of days ago I wrote about how Washington was partying while Baltimore was burning.  The politicians and the media alike should be ashamed of themselves.  Alas, shame is just not something that exists in D.C.  Not at all.

As we kick off a new Presidential election cycle, I'd love to see a candidate vow to end the White House Correspondents' Dinner.  I'm sick of the overt bedfellows it no only displays, but flaunts.  I'm sick of the need politicians have to be entertainers, instead of leaders.  Finally, I'm sick of the pretentious behavior, all done under the cover of "fund raising."  A whopping $100,000 was raised in this last event.  A couple of Delta Waterfowl chapters could have done that.

Candidates, put killing this sham on your platform, and you're well on your way to having my vote.
