Obama puts the lie to the fearful community of comedians and their oft-repeated idea there’s nothing funny about him:
“During the second 100 days, we will design, build and open a library dedicated to my first 100 days.”
“My next 100 days will be so successful, I will complete them in 72 days. And on the 73rd day, I will rest.”
He’s got better writers than John Stewart, anyhow. And although the “bare arms” one was painfully lame, let’s face it, she’s his wife. You can hardly blame the guy for keeping it safe on that one.
I just think it’s too bad that someone hasn’t run with the idea I read about in the comments to some site the other day, in which Obama gets caught smoking by his wife, then ums and ahs in helplessly incoherent babbling until Rahm Emmanuel gets the teleprompter set up, at which point he rips off a totally flawless excuse.
