Obama does dog-eating jokes at the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner.

At 1:30, "What's the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull?... A pit bull is delicious."

Obama manages to do self-deprecating humor without being self-deprecating.

Which means without being funny.

george said...

That joke makes it sound like he has eaten a hockey mom. Has anyone checked his biography yet?

lemondog said...

Too lazy to watch....did the jokes have bite?

Carl Vero said...

Evidently one must assume that the Dear Leader at heart is either a cannibal, for wishing to eat hockey moms, or a pervert, for wishing to eat them out.

Lucien said...

So he went over to Michael Vick's house for barbecue?

It was an odd performance. In running through his routine, he can still project the poise and charm that caused so many to project their best fantasies on him. You want him to succeed, and from there it's easy to convince yourself of a lot of counterfactual things. But as rhhardin said, the barbs in his jokes are always aimed elsewhere and even for those who once shared that tingle down the leg (here's looking at you, Ann), the fading charm just doesn't quite work anymore.

The man had a lot of promise. Too bad it was never realized.

I don't see the "self deprecating" as none of it was about him, with the exception of maybe he looks have grown older. But even that was meant to show how hard he is working. The rest was rips on others...Romney, the SS, etc.

You had the not funny part right though.

This guy has no class.

I'll bet that a hockey mom is better tasting and more fun to eat than a pit bull.

Obama is dumber than Joe Biden. Only not as funny.

Leland said...

I'm with George and Carl. This opens the possibility that Obama may consider himself more familiar with Palin's vagina than Andrew Sullivan.

"What's the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull?... A pit bull is delicious."

Translation: Palin is a Superfreak!

Rare video from inside the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner "After party", when Obama really "lets his hair down".

That girl is pretty wild now
(The girl's a super freak)

The kind of girl you read about
(In new-wave magazines)

That girl is pretty kinky
(The girl's a super freak)

I really love to taste her
(Every time we meet)...


"Blow Danny!"

The optics of these shindigs never seem to bother the invitees. High unemployment, 30 more soldiers killed in Afghanistan this month, enormous fed govt debt and yet the Hollywood crowd and the Beltway media party on.

Romney should promise he will cancel these types of events until the troops are home and unemployment is at 5% or lower and the Senate has passed a budget.

If Scott Brown does a similar gag about Lizzie Warren, listen to the Demos scream.

As a standup comic, I'd tell him not to quit his day job, but he's doing worse at that.

PS He only has one cadence, doesn't he?

(maybe there really is a computer chip inside...)

At 14:05 in this video, Obama says "now, if I do win a second term as President", and the White House Correspondents erupt in applause and cheering.

I don't know; I'm getting tired of pointing this stuff out to my friends. Does it ever penetrate?

pm317 said...

Kimmel was pretty good at aiming many of his jokes at Obama. Courageous man.

Here is the full video.

If it's the one he probably meant (punk that he is) and we're all thinking of, he should be so lucky.

B-b-but he's so cool. And black.

Which makes him so cool.

Don't you dig that?

Are you hip?

PatCA said...

I don't get the joke. Eating a hockey mom...?

Fen said...

So as regards Palin, is Obama joking about cannibalism or cunnlingus?

Fen said...

Or maybe both? Dessert before the main course?

Darrell said...

But was Obama getting the full flavor?

AprilApple said...

Oh look, another party for Barack.

MayBee said...

I hate the way this has turned into a big party for the rich lefties in our country- the president, the press, and Hollywood.
The press too dearly loves inviting the stars who love Obama. It will be such a let down for them if Mitt wins. How will your lowly correspondent get to pal around with all these stars then? You notice Clooney didn't invite a newsie as his +1 to the Oscars.

It's embarassing.

Tea Party at Perrysburg said...

I thought this was extremely distasteful. It had sexual connotations about Sarah Palin.. I also was disgusted by the Hillary Clinton drunk texting jokes. She is SoS. What does this do for us internationally?

But then, Obama's not too worried about riling up Al Qaeda by bragging about bin Laden's death so I guess everything's just fine.

Marilee said...

Remember Laura Bush's "desparate housewife" bit? Now that's self depricating. The Obama's don't know what that means.

Jacques Cuze said...

Wow, so much butt hurt.

If you guys had any class or honesty you would admit the President's jokes were funny and move on.

The President's jokes were peculiar.
Moving on . . .

ndspinelli said...

Remember the topic of cunnilingus caused great turmoil in the Sopranos family. Just sayn'

Gary Rosen said...

"pervert, for wishing to eat them out"

I don't think BO swings that way if you follow my drift. It reminds me of the old adage "a good lawyer is someone who can lie in court and make it sound like the truth, and tell the truth at cocktail parties and make it sound like lies".

autothreads said...

"What's the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull?... A pit bull is delicious."

Is Obama saying that Sarah Palin needs to use Massengill?

Darrell said...

The pit bull did pull his ears while he was eating it, from what I see.

Patrick Kelley said...

I thought it was funny, myself. Mooshelle obviously didn't know it was coming, you could tell by her expression she was shocked that he went there. Her mouth dropped open wide enough to park an SUV.

Fen said...

Can you explain specifically what was funny about it?

Paul said...

"This guy has no class."

And I think he is back on drugs to, just as he did in college.

commoncents said...

We have President Obama's monologue at the White House Correspondents Dinner. Some is actually funny:

Calypso Facto said...

There are over 200,000 hockey moms in the upper Midwest who should be very angry about being called foul-tasting pit bulls.

Yep, he's still black.

Oops,

Been a while since I watched Stripes . . .
Lighten up Francis
