Sometimes, deadpan humor goes a long way with the Washington D.C. crowd (Joel McHale, take note), and Parks and Recreation straight man Nick Offerman served up a number of zingers about Hollywood and the Beltway at Thursday’s 70th annual Radio and Television Correspondents Dinner at the Marriot Marquis. White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough addressed the crowd, speaking humorously about his job but turned a serious note when it came to democracy and debate, while Offerman took care of the entertainment.  Some particular highlights from Offerman’s speech below: “According to the Supreme Court, corporations are now considered as people, which is great because it’s always been my dream to punch Time Warner in the face.”  Also: “Between Republicans and Democrats, this city has become a noxious stink hole, where very little gets down because of backstabbing, deceit and greed. Just want to thank all of you for allowing a Hollywood actor like myself feel welcome. But Republicans have come around on sex education: I understand they’ve allowed to teach fracking in schools.” Enjoy:

McHale was MUCH better than Offerman. I don't think I laughed once at Nick.

Deadline absolutely ripped Joel apart. Still taking stabs, apparently. It's kind of weird.
