How Obama could prove he has a sense of humor
The nation is worried. Comedians from New York to LA are trying to figure out if they are allowed to make jokes about Barack Obama. Or even if they can think of any. REPORT about guy who said 20 times "don't think I'm a racist, but...".
Mr. Obama apparently lacks a sense of humor about himself, his prominet ears, and his wife. It's a National --- no it's a Global Comedy Crisis.
Think I'm kidding? In the LA Times, comedian Joel Stein writes that
That's the real problem, of course. All the comedians are scared gutless by the Official Obama Rulebook Against Offensive Jokes Aimed at Me. As the Leftist UK Guardian explains to the world, "Obama is off-limits."
It's a politician's paradise on earth. Nobody can laugh at him! It's the funniest thing since Joe Stalin.
Well, here's a way Obama could prove that he's not got the swelled head so bad that he's shot out of earth orbit. This idea got started when I was feeling bugged by a strong sense that Senator Obama reminds me of somebody ... somebody familiar. I just couldn't figure out who. It's been bothering me for weeks.
Then I finally got it. It's Steve Martin's King Tut!
Now half of you are too young to remember this. So you have to imagine a young Steve Martin, or rather Senator Barack Obama, on stage in front of thousands of people, dressed in his King Tut costume, with the stripes and the headdress and all. And he's dancin' sideways, like a Pharaoh is supposed to. Steve Martin started it as a stage act, and ended up doing it on Saturday Night Live.
Now this song basically has two notes: KING and Tut. And then just count "two, three, four/ one, two, three, KING Tut" again.
Simple. You can get it for 99 cents on iTunes.
To dance King Tut, you just move sideways to the music, with your arms up at right angles like an Egyptian wall painting.
Obama could learn it in a minute.
It goes at a sort of easy mincing pace.
OK, maestro, please!
"King Tut" - Steve Martin

Can't you just see Obama doing King Tut? Come on, lighten up!
I'm only trying to help, here, Obamanistas.
