President Barack Obama Jokes with Jay Leno at Annual Dinner

President Barack Obama brought down the house at the 2010 White House Correspondents' Dinner Saturday night with a series of jokes that included a little dig at "Tonight Show" host Jay Leno.

“I am glad that the only person whose ratings fell more than mine is here tonight. Great to see you, Jay,” the President joked about the talk show host, who was the headlining comedian at the dinner. “I’m also glad that I’m speaking first -- because we’ve all seen what happens when somebody takes the time slot after Leno.”

Obama also made a crack at former presidential hopeful Senator John McCain. "Unfortunately John McCain couldn't make it. He recently claimed that he had never identified himself as a maverick, and we all know what happens in Arizona when you don't have an ID. ... Adios amigos," the president said, making a joke in reference to McCain's home state of Arizona passing a new immigration law.
