What does President Obama's week-in-review look like in the eyes of a 1980s hit radio station?

It's like a totally tubular marriage (don't tell Miss California) of hits from the 80s (complete with big hair and YouTube videos) and some of the week's raddest political stories.

Let the awesomeness begin...

President Obama could begin the week with a celebration even before Vice President Biden boarded that crazy train from Delaware to DC. Poll numbers were up. Straight up. A 66 percent approval rating.

Despite the polls, the White House was under pressure by many on the right for some of the jokes Wanda Sykes told at the White House Correspondents dinner on Saturday night. It was a wild thing.

In the crossfire was a joke about Rush Limbaugh being a terrorist. White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said "I can't go for that, no can do" when asked about the joke.

Sykes responded that girls just want to have fun and critics should beat it.
