Have you noticed how few jokes there are about Obama? A man you cannot make fun of has a definite problem. He needs change! If you hear or read an Obama joke, please post it under comments. German, French, Arabic, Kisuahili, etc. welcome.
We know the battle to find humor in Obama will be long, but always remember that no matter what obstacles stand in our way, nothing can stand in the way of the power of millions of voices calling for laughter. Yes, we can! 😉
So here are some of the jokes the comedians have been making (more, please). Mouse over the highlighted words to find translations.
Here are Jay Leno‘s jokes about Jesse Jackson and Barack Obama:
Insiders claim that even though Jesse Jackson supports Barack Obama publicly for president, privately he doesn’t like him. You know, it’s kind of like Bill with Hillary.
I’m sure you know by now, Jesse Jackson was overheard saying, and I’ll put this more delicately, that he wanted to cut Barack Obama’s testicles off. And Jesse has been on several news programs the last couple of days, explaining what he meant by those comments. Do you need to explain that?
Today Jesse tried to reach out to Obama, and Obama said, “Keep your hands where I can see them!”
Jesse Jackson also said he thought Barack Obama was talking down to black people by lecturing on things like fatherhood and being a responsible husband. Jesse thought it was insulting, not only to him, but to his former mistress and their lovechild.
You know, people really like Barack Obama because he’s an inspirational speaker. But he was not the first one — I was checking my presidential history — he was not the first candidate to use the phrase ‘Yes we can!’ Bill Clinton frequently used that on interns.
Thank you, Eamonn, for this one:
Obama, sympathetic to comics’ attempts to find jokes to make about him, has put out a list of official ones, including this:A traveling salesman knocks on the door of a farmhouse, and much to his surprise, Barack Obama answers the door.
The salesman says, “I was expecting the farmer’s daughter.”Obama replies, “She’s not here. The farm was foreclosed on because of subprime loans that are making a mockery of the American dream. — Andy Borowitz
Obama, the smooth operator:
McCain jokes coming soon 😉 I promise!
