Colin Quinn: Comedians too scared to joke about Obama
Fox Nation ^

Posted on 05/14/2013 7:59:45 AM PDT by caseyn

COLIN QUINN: The only person who has made jokes about President Obama in the 5 years he has been in -- is President Obama. That’s how scared people are to make jokes, no late-night talk shows, only he makes them at the White House press conferences, telling people, "Hey, it’s okay to joke about me. You see I’m doing it!"

This is pathetic!

People joke around the President. They’ll be like, hey you've heard the joke about President Obama? JOE BIDEN. Haha! And everybody one is like "Whew! Close call!"

It is BECAUSE of FEAR from a friendly call from the IRS.

Far more likely, it is fear of being called “racist”. PC has turned out to be a disturbingly effective form of control.

I saw Dana Carvey do an omuslim impersonation in the context of all the living presidents getting together in Dallas at the library and getting a buzz on together but there was nothing in the bit except the omuslim talks funny. That was it.

Maybe they still remember Steve Bridges, the comedian/impersonator who offended The Obama and died a bizarre death.

Wasn’t this the speculation as to why Leno is leaving the Tonight Show? Too many anti-obama jokes, like these:

Hey, over the weekend, President Obama, you know that, President Obama played golf with Tiger Woods. And Tiger said the president was a very good golfer for a guy who only plays five days a week. You know, so, that’s pretty good.

Actually, you know what the president’s handicap is? Anybody know? Doesn’t understand economics. That’s the handicap. But other than that
, other than that, he’s fine.

That too.

The only one who got away with poking fun at Obama has been Jay Leno, but he is calling it quits.

Most comdedians are very liberal. Their views mirror Obama's almost 100%. So when they say they find nothing funny about Obama, they're being serious. Which is why in my fifty years of listening to comdedians, I'd guess about ninety-five percent of the political jokes I've heard were directed at Republicans or conservatives.

The great majority of comedians found nothing funny about all the nuts in the women's/femi-nazi movement, leftist radicals period, minority scoundrels i.e. Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, homosexual fanatics, warmists, food Nazis, communist professors, etc. They find nothing hypocritical about leftist critics like Michael Moore, Ralph Nader, or Noam Chomsky being multi-millionaires. I was more than a little surprised to hear George Carlin one time rip environmental Nazis, because barbs directed at them by comedians are so rare.

I just did a search on Steve Bridges. The article about his death indicated that George W called and offered condolenses. No mention of Obama doing the same.

To: I want the USA back; Biggirl; All

In the failed world of Communism, all functions of a Society are controlled by a Central Government.

Our Central Federal Government has been easily taken over by Obama to the gleeful cheers of MSNBC and others in the Liberal Agenda Media.

This is as good a time as any to take note of those who have willingly enabled the blatant Communist ideas and programs of Obama to take hold in our Central Federal Government.

It is also a good time to take note of the many dictatorial powers that our sorry US Congress has granted to the Administration Branch and related Bureaus of our Central Federal Government.

Just to balance our income with our spending, the Central Federal Government must reduce spending by 40 percent.

If Central Federal Government Regulations were reduced 40 percent, our Society would be 40 percent further removed from control by the Central Federal Government.

Currently, there are 3 major Impeachable Scandals that our sorry RINOs could use to remove Obama from our Central, semi-Communist, Federal Government.

My question is: “Do our sorry Congressional RINOs have the POLITICAL MOTIVATION to Impeach and Remove B. Hussein Obama, aka Barry Soetoro, a legal citizen of Indonesia?”

And the odd thing is Obama is as white as Pat Boone. Just because his sperm donor was Kenyan, that means Obama is as black as Flavor Flav to liberals.

Freakin' Howard Stern of all people is blacker than Obama. Stern was raised in Roosevelt Long Island which is a 100% black neighborhood. From the time he was a baby till the time he graduated High school, he was raised in a 100% black environment.

But this fool Obama who was raised in Hawaii (supposedly) by white people in a white neighborhood is treated like he's James Brown? What absolute BS. The blackest Barack ever got is when he was raised for a year in a wealthy section of Indonesia, but that's it.

You ever hear of that actor Wentworth Miller? Like Obama, he had a black father and a white mother and look how he turned out.

You think they would call him "black" if he was POTUS? Especially if he were Republican? Not a chance in hell. And he WAS raised by his black father AND lived in Brooklyn around black people!

Bridges was found dead on March 3, 2012, by his maid in his Los Angeles home, after he failed to return a call the day before. According to his agent, Bridges had just returned from performing in Hong Kong and went to bed complaining that he felt “super-jetlagged”. “Stephen’s passing has been ruled an accident and that the probable cause of death was due to “upper airway anaphylaxis”, caused by a severe allergic reaction.

Members of Congress have a vested interest in maintaining the status quo with The Left.

They want their taxpayer-funded lifestyles to continue, and then retire with their taxpayer-funded pensions and free-for-life health care, and sit on the porch of their dachas by the lake, like their Soviet cousins of old.

I think part of the reason is the fact that there is absolutely nothing funny about Obama. It would be like making jokes about a bitter, friendless zombie.
