Joel McHale to Host the White House Correspondents’ Dinner

Hope President Obama likes Kardashian punch lines, because it was announced today that Joel McHale will be hosting the White House Correspondents' Dinner. McHale will be the second host in a row to be taller than the president, following Conan O'Brien, who had the gig last year. The dinner, which will be celebrating the White House Correspondents' Association's centennial, will be held on May 3. No word on whom McHale will hire to help with his speech. Maybe Dan Harmon will come onboard to make the whole thing an American President parody.
