Letterman Makes Teleprompter Joke!
Update: Obama Without Teleprompter? Nope -- He Had a Huge TelePromTV Screen In the Back of the Room

...defending Obama, and making the joke at Bush's expense.

Nothing funny about Obama -- why, comedians even expressly repudiate any jokes tossed into their wheelhouse.

Letterman's point, to the extent he has one, is that Obama should be given slack on his teleprompter addiction -- after all, he just wants to "get the words right." Then he contrasts Obama with a teleprompter to Bush without one. Audience laughs. Ha, ha, ha.

Of course, if he wanted to do the with teleprompter/without teleprompter joke, he could have just used Uhh-bama's stumbles, eh? Like the embarrassing moments tucked into this video.

Nothing funny about this president. Nothing.

So, if you want to see it, here it is:

(Vid thanks to Sandy Berger, helping me avoid linking the HuffPo.)

If you do watch, enjoy Letterman lecturing us all that we can't knock Obama, not at all, because, for goodness sakes, the man's inherited a crisis and "at least he's trying."

A while ago I lost most of my funny and so I turned to pure politics. I see Letterman is following my lead.


Obama's Woobie: You can't take a baby's woobie.

Thanks to Craig C.
