Who Says Obama's Not Funny?

Ralph Alter
Way back in the ancient history of the 2008 Presidential campaign, the tingly-legged media was busy trying to discover why there was so little humor published about the Democrat candidate who would become our 44th President.

Folks over at the New York Times were busy interviewing comedians to understand their inability to discover the Incredible Lightness of Barry:

Many of the late-night comics and their writers - nearly all white - now admit to The New York Times' Bill Carter that because of race and because there is nothing "buffoonish" about Obama - and because many in their audiences are intoxicated by him and resistant to seeing him skewered - he has not been flayed by the sort of ridicule that diminished Dukakis, Gore and Kerry.

Well Obama has been POTUS for 3 weeks now and he is already making George W. look like Mikhail Baryshnikov.  Here he is bumping his head trying to enter Air Force One: (). Doh! And here he is trying to enter the White House through a window.  Whoops!

One would think a guy with ears as big as Obama's could sense the size and shape of a doorway by echolocation.  Or maybe the doorways were larger in The One One, or whatever they were calling Obama's campaign plane.

For weeks now we have heard about how Obama is the reincarnation of Abraham Lincoln or Franklin D. Roosevelt.  Little did we realize that he is really more like the second coming of Gerald Ford.
