Come, I will conceal nothing from you; if I had ever been invited, I would have gone. But I’ve never been invited, and I probably never will be invited, and I suspect that some of the people who get all het up about the White House Correspondents Dinner might be similarly quietly wishing that they could go. And, yeah, I know that it’s vaguely silly to want to go to this thing. But, what the heck: if I can’t use this site to every so often admit to something vaguely silly, why do I have this site in the first place?
Now that I’ve established that, let me finish up by saying: no, it’s not #nerdprom. Most of those people aren’t nerds. And I don’t mean that as a compliment*.
*I don’t mean it as an insult. Just as a statement of fact about an unfortunate lack of a particular quality.
