Robert Gibbs doesn’t like his boss’s taste in jokes

The White House Press Secretary weighed in today concerning a couple of Wanda Sykes’ jokes Saturday night:

In his daily briefing Monday, Robert Gibbs distanced the president from comedian Wanda Sykes’ joke comparing Rush Limbaugh to a 9/11 hijacker at the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner.

“I don’t know how the guests get booked,” Gibbs said, adding that he hadn’t “talked specifically” with Obama about Sykes’ crack.

“I think there are a lot of topics that are better left for serious reflection rather than comedy. I think there’s no doubt 9/11 is part of that,” Gibbs continued.

Tell that to your boss, Mr. Gibbs. This screen cap is from the second Sykes finished her “joke” about Rush Limbaugh being the 20th hijacker on 9/11 (click the pic to see that particular segment):

I think we have a new slogan for Obama’s re-election campaign: “Laughter: The new offended.” I haven’t seen Obama this angry since Daniel Ortega’s speech.

While we’re on the subject, why don’t comedians do many jokes on Obama? According to Bill Sheft, a writer for David Letterman, it’s because Barack is just too damn competent. Sheft just wrote an Obama joke and probably doesn’t even realize it.

Writing jokes about President Obama isn’t as tough as they’re leading everyone to believe. I even wrote a few in today’s column. They may not be the greatest, but I’ll put them up against Wanda Sykes’ 9/11 material any day of the week — the difference being that Obama won’t laugh at mine.
