The Gridiron Dinner is a Washington institution -- politicians making fun of one another.

But few jokes at the expense of one's colleagues are this good. From Vice President Biden's appearance Saturday night, on Ted Cruz and his lack of likability:

Ted Cruz? An inspiration to every kid in America who worries that he’ll never be able to run for president because nobody likes him. He’s running. And look, I told Barack, if you really, really want to remake the Supreme Court, nominate Cruz. Before you know it, you’ll have eight vacancies.

Ouch.
