Chairman Zero Goes Off Teleprompter
True, Obama isn’t very good at his day job. But he’d better not quit it just yet if last night’s foray into comedy is any indication. While the economy tailspins toward depression, our Community Organizer in Chief was on the Jay Leno show, cracking jokes about the disabled:
Toward the end of the interview on Thursday, Obama told host Jay Leno he’s been practicing at the White House’s bowling alley but wasn’t happy with his score of 129.
Leno complimented Obama on the score, but the president quipped, “It was like the Special Olympics or something,” which prompted laughter from the audience.
Fortunately he could count on the audience to laugh on cue, no matter how oafish his attempted jokes. Imagine if a Republican dropped a bomb like that. The ensuing silence would be heard in outer space — until the next morning, when the media would begin to shriek.
