    Looks like somebody is taking those White House Correspondents’ Dinner jokes seriously—and we don’t mean Jay-Z. Sen. Mitch McConnell’s campaign account tweeted a photo on Monday of the Kentucky Republican sitting alone with a beer and an open chair after President Obama joked at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner about having a drink with him. At the swanky dinner on Saturday night, Obama said that some didn’t consider his bipartisan dinner enough, saying “some folks think I didn’t spend enough time with Congress. ‘Why don’t you get a drink with Mitch McConnell?’ they ask. Really? Why don’t you get a drink with Mitch McConnell.” McConnell answered by saying “I’m shocked. He obviously doesn’t see my soft side.”
