Rejected Presidential Jokes

With the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner this weekend, speechwriter Mark Katz tells Politico about two jokes he wrote for the dinner which were ultimately rejected by the speakers.

For Bill Clinton in 1998 after he had survived impeachment and fundraising scandals: "Looking back, maybe I should have raised money in the Oval Office and had sex in the Lincoln Bedroom."

For Al Gore in 2000 after his mediocre college grades became public: "It's true I got C's and D's my freshman year at Harvard, but, in my own defense, that was the year I invented the bong."
