Conan O'Brien Wants to Talk About Your Pension

The White House Correspondents Association announced Wednesday that Conan O'Brien would be the speaker at its annual dinner in April. 

The late-night funnyman is clearly excited about the gig, but perhaps not for the reason you might think -- at least judging from the tweet he sent out after the news was made public.

"I'm honored to host the WH Correspondents dinner," O'Brien tweeted. "Get ready for 2 minutes of jokes, then 40 minutes on public employee pension reform."

Tom Shoop is vice president and editor in chief at Government Executive Media Group, where he oversees both print and online editorial operations. He started as associate editor of Government Executive magazine in 1989; launched the company’s flagship website, GovExec.com, in 1996; and was named editor in chief in 2007.
