    At the 99th annual White House Correspondents' dinner Saturday night, President Obama successfully sailed through the one night of the year where we don't just hope—but demand—he be funny. After paying tribute to the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing, the president launched into a series of quips that left the entire room giggling.
