Obama guests on Letterman


President Obama and David Letterman share a laugh at today's taping of the Late Night Show

Here's a top ten reasons bit that Letterman would never use about the president on tonight's show: Ten reasons why Obama has worn out his welcome.

10. He had his scheduler call the National Hockey League to
see if he could throw out the first puck.

 9. If someone reaches for a can of herring, he can be counted
on to show up at the opening.

 8. He turned up in Dora the Explorer's backpack.

 7. He wanted to sing "Take me out to the ballgame" during
the seventh inning stretch, but even the Cubs wouldn't have him.

 6. Tom Delay had already taken his spot on "Dancing with the

 5. The Alexandria Cub Scouts said they'd be glad to have him
as a den leader if he promised not to lecture the Webelos about the benefits of
his health care plan.

 4. He's scheduled to be in the American Lung Association's
latest public service announcement explaining the hazards of cigarette smoking.

 3. In danger of running out of shows to appear on, he
recently has been courting the QVC shopping channel to pitch over-stocked
Detroit Lions jackets.

 2. He has hired an agent to get him the role of Sheridan
Whiteside in the classic play "The Man who came to Dinner" in Door County summer stock
next year.

 1. Even Joe Bidden Biden is so sick of seeing him all over
television that the vice president only feels safe watching re-runs of Nick
Baker's Weird Creatures on the Smithsonian cable channel.

  • In reply to MareSwallow:

    Indeed. Hm, let's see. Brilliant, articulate, visionary, ethical...nah, why fill the airwaves with that?!?!?

  • In reply to MareSwallow:

    Is there an opposite for LOL?

  • In reply to MareSwallow:

    Might want to leave satire to the professionals . . .

  • In reply to MareSwallow:

    Wow!! Even in this economy, people still manage to get paid without ANY marketable skills. You, sir, are as funny as a pulled groin. They actually PAY you for this dribble?!?!?--unbelievable. Go somewhere & fade away....

  • In reply to MareSwallow:

    Not funny, Dennis.

  • He didn't go on Fox. Not surprisingly, one of the network outlets said that we would be "on all 3 broacast networks."

    I wonder how Conan's ratings were last night and tonight. After Letterman said that both BUBBA and Bush were good for him for 16 years, how is he going to deal with Bubba?
