Image Credit: Albert L. Ortega/PR Photos; Janet Mayer/PR PhotosSeth Meyers of Saturday Night Live will host the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner on April 30, according to CNN. Meyers has been skewering politicians for years as the host of Saturday Night Live‘s “Weekend Update,” so it will be interesting to see how his jokes land in Washington. If you’ll recall, Stephen Colbert delivered one of the ballsiest, most outrageous examples of performance art in 2006, when he ripped the Bush Administration and the Washington press corp to their faces, and subsequent hosts — Rich Little, Jay Leno — have pulled their punches a tad. Meyers is a charming, intelligent guy, and I fully expect him to employ the dry, irreverent wit for which he’s known on SNL. There’s so much to poke fun of these days, but do you expect Meyers to go for the jugular, Colbert-style?
