WASHINGTON, March 9 (UPI) -- The world of politics was fair game this weekend at Washington's Gridiron Club where President George Bush was in attendance, it was reported Sunday.
The Washington Post said Saturday's annual Gridiron Club dinner gave high-ranking politicians a chance to poke fun at one another and the president was not immune from the good-natured ribbing.
Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison took time to offer her fellow Texas Republican a bit of advice for his post-White House days.
"At the zoo in Washington, the cage has the name of the animal, then the name in Latin. In a Texas zoo, we have the name of the animal and the recipe," Hutchison said.
The president even got into the fun of the evening by performing a song for the assembled crowd and later offered a little sarcastic comment for the media in attendance.
"When you are not writing stories, you are not half bad," the president said.
The annual dinner involves members from both political parties and is focused on satirical sketches by various politicians.
