WASHINGTON – It was the hottest ticket in town, a black-tie dinner gathering of Washington's political and media elite but Dick Cheney couldn't make it.

The former vice president was busy, President Barack Obama joked, working on his memoir "tentatively titled, How to Shoot Friends and Interrogate People."

Obama noted that he and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton had once been political rivals. "These days," he assured the gathering at the Washington Hilton ballroom, "we could not be closer."

"In fact the second she got back from Mexico, she pulled me into a hug and said I should go down there myself."

Flip Wilson at his best!

“I believe my next hundred days will be so successful that I will be able to complete them in 72 days,” he said to a roar of laughter. “And on my 73rd day, I will rest.”

.
.

“His chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, Obama observed, always has a hard time on Mother’s Day. He’s not used to saying the word ‘day’ after ‘mother,’” Obama said.”

“The chairman of Republican National Committee, Michael Steele, was “in the house tonight,” Obama noted. “Or as he would say, ‘In the heezy.’”

“Michael for the last time, the Republican Party does not qualify for a bailout,” Obama told Steele. “Rush Limbaugh does not count as a troubled asset, I’m sorry.”

And here I thought Bob Saget was the least funny man in America...

I am so utterly SICK of hearing about this ZERO involved in every aspect of everything every time I see his name I want to just turn off whatever I'm watching.

The media is going to jump the shark with their love fest very soon now and like they falsely raised him up, they will have to tear him down just to maintain a semblance of an audience!

"Dick Cheney was supposed to be here, but he is very busy working on his memoir.... Tentatively titled, "How to Shoot Friends and Interrogate People.''

Totally not funny and totally disgusting. This is who Obama is.

Obama tells the joke that they "all voted for him" - it was followed by mildly embarrassed laughter.

The last laugh will belong to the people - people who are canceling their subscriptions and changing the channel when biased "news" comes on the air.

The insults this street bum uses are a disgrace. I’ll give Bush that one, he did send cheap insults.
