Latest Late Night Obama Jokes
Hot Air ^ | 11/23/2010 | Andrew Malcolm

Once upon a time there was widespread concern that America’s late-night TV comedians, who fuel and reflect so much of popular culture’s chatter, would shy away from making fun of the Smoker-in-Chief because, well, you know.

As someone who collects these passing smiles, we can report that is not the case. Here are a few recent offerings:

Letterman: Vice President Joe Bidens birthday party was over the weekend. President Obama was so excited he asked Biden to attend in his place.

Leno: Happy Birthday to Joe Biden. President Obama got him a gag gift. No, not a funny gift. A real gag.

Conan: President Obama scheduled to grant a turkey the traditional pardon on Wednesday. But a spokesman for the turkey now says it doesn’t need a pardon. It needs a job.

Fallon: What is going on these days? George W. Bush writes a 500-page memoir and Obama publishes a kids coloring book.

Leno: Tough decision for President Obama this week: Pardon the turkey or Democrat Rep. Charlie Rangel.

Fallon: Today, President Obama is going down to Kokomo, Ind. That makes sense. No one knows better how to get there fast and then take it slow.

Fallon: Experts announce a new plan to slash the federal debt by $6 trillion. All we have to do is switch from regular light bulbs to not having a federal government.

Leno: House Democrats just elected Nancy Pelosi as their minority leader for the new Congress. Why mess with success, right?

Conan: Congressional Democrats push for $12 billion in additional unemployment benefits. They say they can’t turn their backs on those who until two weeks ago were House Democrats.

I didnt even know Jimmy Fallon had a show. But I agree, his zingers were dead on.

"All we have to do is switch from regular light bulbs to not having a federal government. "

Never been a Fallon fan, but whoever wrote that is "the bomb" (do the kids still say that?).

They've gone from protecting us from foreign enemies to becoming a foreign enemy!

Thank goodness for the comedians. I am so tired of turning on the tv and watching news reader people fawn all over this president.

Of course, if Obama were to take over as dictator, all of these comedians would be in jail.

It’s surreal to hear that our president actually told foreign dignitaries from Portugal that his dog is a breed from their country. I bet that made them think he’s brilliant.

“It’s surreal to hear that our president actually told foreign dignitaries from Portugal that his dog is a breed from their country. I bet that made them think he’s brilliant.”

Something a 2-10 year old would say to a teacher or a relative. Even his young daughters are too old and mature to make comments like that. Let’s just give them his job. They would do it far better.
