In an srticle for Bob Cesca says that people should not laugh at John McCain as he is not funny (Senator McCain Isn't Funny).
Well he makes me laugh coz he looks like Mr. Magoo but I don’t have a vote in American elections so let’s put my opinion aside.
Cesca’s complaining, typical of a mealy mouthed supporter of the political correctness police was that McCain’s jokes are in bad taste, sometimes even bordering on sexist, ageist, racist, apeist, anti - semitic and anti – Islamic. What he’s saying in effect is that all jokes are unacceptable because someone, somewhere might be offended by them.
Unfortunately that is the smug, superior attitude that loses the Democrats election after election. The white working class will never warm to the smug self righteousness of politically correct liberals. We have already seen from the reaction to that New Yorker cartoon that Barak Obama and his campaign managers have no sense of humour. (It’s a brilliant cartoon BTW, forget the burning flag, the outfits etc. that caused all the fuss, it’s the expression on Michelle’s face, a look saying "we’ve won already" that makes it so pertinent. It is that arrogant triumphalism that will be their undoing.
People are not going to like Obama's behaving as if already President of the World before he is even officially the Democrtatic candidate.) The Obama camp start whining if anybody tries to make any kind of joke about Obama but a sense of humour by-pass is not an election winning quality, remember John Kerry…. John who? you say. QED.
So for the assistance and comfort of those Democrats working to persuade the convention to dump Mr Loser and replace him with a candidate who has a chance of winning, here are examples of politically acceptable Obama jokes that should not set off even the most hypersensitive Obama supporters.
Barak Obama and Jeremiah Wright were having sex is the back of a van. What’s wrong with that, in a liberal society consenting adults should be free to express their mutual affection any way they wish.
A Jew, A Muslim and Barak Obama walk into a bar. What a fine example of a diverse but functioning community.
Michelle Obama was spotted in New York last week wearing combat fatigues and with her hair in an afro. And why not? Seventies Feminist Retro is the hot look this summer according to fashion experts.
On a routine flight, the aircraft carrying Barak Obama and his campaign team few into the Bermuda Triangle. When the plane crash landed nobody was hurt but they were on the beach of an Island in a Kafkaesque parallel universe.
The team searched for things that might help them survive, walking around for many hours in the hot sun. At last the Senator found an old oil lamp. He gave it a rub to see if the metal was corroded under the seaweed. Suddenly a genie appeared and said, "You have called me and now I must grant you three wishes. What is your first wish?"
"I'd like a glass of cool clean water that refills itself when somebody drinks from it," said the Senator.
You sure you wouldn't prefer beer, champagne, kool aid? the Genie asked.
No, water will be fine, I’m a liberal said Barak.
BING, the glass appeared in his hand and sure enough filled up as quickly as he drank it.
"And what can I grant you for your remaining wishes", the Genie asked, "Tasty food, secure shelter, a bevy of beautiful virgins?"
"I'll have another two of these glasses please," said Obama, "one for the thirsty of Africa and one for the thirsty of Asia."
What's the difference between a 747 and Barak Obama? A 747 stops whining when it gets to Heathrow Airport................................and Barak Obama is a successful African American politician with a good chance of being elected President of the U.S.A.
Barak Obama walks into a bar and gets a drink. As he is standing there enjoying his lemonade the barman notices that he keep pulling open his shirt pocket and saying, "You OK Tiny?" or "How you doing Tiny?"
Intrigued the barman moves closer but Barak just carries on talking into this pocket. Finally the bartender has to ask, "Excuse me sir, but what is the thing in your pocket you keep talking to."
"Its my pet newt," says the Senator, "he gets fretful if I leave him alone."
"And why do you call him Tiny?" the barman asks.
Obama said, "Because he’s my newt, but despite his size, no less deserving of respect than any other creature.
I’m just trying to lighten things up for people already suffering election fatigue. If Obama’s Politically Correct humourlessness is going to define the campaign it will be a long grind to November for the American public.
