`Why don't you make jokes about Obama
foxnews.com ^ | August 5 2013 | Associated Press

"People always say to me, they say, `Hey, Letterman,' they say. `Why don't you make jokes about Obama?' And I say, `All right, I'll tell you why. I don't make jokes about him because I don't want the FBI tapping my phone,"' he said.

Leno tapped into the same idea with a different story: "I was going to start off tonight with an Obama joke, but I don't want to get audited by the IRS, so forget that."

Hmmm. Perhaps that would explain the relative paucity of BJ Clintoon or Hitlery (Mrs. Bill Clinton) jokes during their reign compared to all the vitriol directed towards the Bush administration...

I don’t make Obama jokes because his name isn’t Weiner. That and I don’t want the IRS, NSA and FBI investigating me.

Letterman would probably feel more comfortable making sex jokes about one of Sarah Palin’s underage daughters.

I like the trend too, but one of the problems with 0bama jokes is the same as in 2008.

The left don't think they're funny and the right don't think they're jokes.

I was going to tell a Biden joke but I was afraid he’d blow a shotgun through my door.

As someone close to the scene, Letterman ordered his writers not to make jokes about Obama. So they didn’t. Apparently, Letterman is under the thumb of his very liberal head writer (or at least he was).

I do not make jokes about Obama because he is not funny. He is letting America be plundered. He squanders our moral authority. He diminishes our military power. He is making us a third world economy.....what is funny about Obama?

His utter arrogance assuming that no one can see him for what he is ..is the only funny thing about him.

he is truly tragically comic in his transparent posturing.

Its either laugh or cry...and I prefer to laugh at em.

yes it does require an enormous amount of discipline not to be thoroughly discouraged by his ascencion!

he is an insult to office of the Presidency and every American Living Dead and as yet unborn.

Conservatives know that whole groups of people are exempt from jokes being made about them. Has any of the late-night talk show spielers ever made a joke about Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Michael Moore, Oliver Stone, Ralph Nader, Gloria Steinem, and a host of other leftist jerks? I’ve never heard any.

I don’t have time to think up Obama jokes because I’m too busy planning my grand tour of the 57 states via the intercontinental railroad.

Forget that: They are investigating you anyway.

They are listening to everyone and tracking their travels on the WWW.

If you are on Free Republic they probably have a flag next to your name.
