NBC's Joel McHale will do the honors this Saturday night at the White House Correspondents' Dinner, otherwise known as Nerdprom. I know a lot of people hate these because it's the epitome of everything that is wrong with our corporate media cozying up to those in power that they are supposed to be reporting on.

I agree with those sentiments completely, but that doesn't change the fact that I have really enjoyed a few of these. There were a lot of stinkers out there as well, but my favorites have to be, first and foremost, Stephen Colbert's appearance back in 2006, which you can watch above.

Right after that has to be what happened to The Donald back in 2011. First he got booed while he was arriving at the dinner.

Then later that evening, President Obama proceeded to make mincemeat of him:

And then Seth Meyers went in for the kill and finished him off.:

So, if you're like me and have actually watched most of these, which was your favorite? The most embarrassing had to be Dancin' David Gregory making an ass out of himself with "MC Rove" back in 2007.

Can you help us out?
