Comedian Marlon Wayans: ‘Tough’ to Make Jokes About Obama, ‘Sarah Palin Jokes Are Hilarious’
cnsnews.com ^ | May 6, 2010 | Nicholas Ballasy

(CNSNews.com) - Actor and comedian Marlon Wayans said it is “tough” to make jokes about President Barack Obama because he’s “actually trying to do something good” but added that “they had a field day with Bush” and “the Sarah Palin jokes are hilarious.” Film Director Judd Apatow said he agreed with Wayans.

At the recent Creative Coalition’s “Art and Soul” gala, CNSNews.com asked Wayans, “As an actor and a comedian, what do you think about the comedy shows and the jokes that have been made about President Obama? Do you think they’ve been fair? Are they too easy on him?”

Wayans said, “Honestly, I haven’t seen any hilarity yet. I think he’s a tough one because he’s actually trying to do something good. Like, they had a field day with Bush -- Bush jokes all day. But I haven’t seen a really good one [about Obama].”

“Now, the Sarah Palin jokes are hilarious,” said Wayans. “I think Tina Fay doing all that on Saturday Night Live is hilarious. She does a better Sarah Palin than Sarah Palin does. So, I mean, Barack, he’s a tough one. He’s a tough cookie to crack, if you will. He’s hard.”

If he thinks it's hard to write Obama jokes then he is a poor comedian.

Drank the "cool" aid.

Barack Obama is a red diaper doper baby. He bragged in his autobiography about hanging with the Marxist professors, womyn's lib radicals, and other jaded sorts dissing America at every turn. He has not had one positive thing to tell anyone about his nation EXCEPT if he can say "now that I'M here".

His intentions are not positive. He seeks to lower the US' standing in this world. He isn't the first. Madelyn Albright said that it scared her to think of a world where the United States was the lone superpower.

Open your eyes people. These aren't open mics that accidently left on. They are naked admissions.

The left and entertainment people are as afraid to joke about Obama as they are to joke about Islam or Mohammad.

Coincidence?

Marlon you are either:

1. a not-very-talented comedian if you can’t come up with something on BHO, or

2. you have a huge intellectual blindspot.

I mean, just LOOK at Barak Obama. He just screams “Geek”!

And what's with that Mussolini pose Obama keeps adopting? Well, maybe that's not so much funny as scary.

“I think Tina Fay doing all that on Saturday Night Live is hilarious. She does a better Sarah Palin than Sarah Palin does.”

Such is the case when you want to stuff phony quotes in the mouth of a candidate like “I can see Russia from my house” and have the voters believe them.

It's hard to make jokes about “O” because his supporters are too stupid to know when they have been insulted.

Barack Obama was seated next to a little girl on an airplane trip back to Washington. He turned to her and said, “Let’s talk. I’ve heard that flights go quicker if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passenger.”

The little girl, who had just opened her book, closed it slowly and said to The Obama, “What would you like to talk about?”

“Oh, I don’t know,” said the Obama. “How about What Changes I Should Make To America?” and he smiles.

“OK,” she says. “That could be an interesting topic. But let me ask you a question first. A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat the same stuff - grass. Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns out a flat patty, and a horse produces clumps of dried grass. Why do you suppose that is?”

Obama, visibly surprised by the little girl’s intelligence, thinks about it for a second and finally says, “Hmmm, I have no idea.”

To which the little girl replies, “Do you really feel qualified to change America when you don’t know shit?”

Real reason:

It’s not humorous or safe to make fun of Marxists when they’re in power!

This coming from the same types and groups which give every Despot, Dictator, Tyrant, Communist, Leninist, Maoist and Islamist a pass.

This is another perfect example of the liberal mind.

It's not the actions, words or results, folks! It's the goal, real or imagined, that liberals care about. It's how that person makes the liberal feel.

If a liberal is convinced, and most of them are, that Barack Obama is "trying to do something good", then what he actually does is entirely, completely and utterly irrelevant. Such details are ignored or quickly forgotten.

It's the reason why Che Guevera is honored. It's why American servicemen have been disparaged.

Once a leftist's mind is made up about whether or not your goals match his, then the brain shuts off and the eyes go dark. The judgment has been struck. He knows how he feels about it and nothing else matters.

Answer: it’s easy to make jokes about someone you despise and disrespect.

On the other hand, it’s hard to make jokes about someone you worship.

That’s why it’s easy for me to make jokes about brocko, and that’s why it’s impossible for Wayans to bring himself to do it.
