The problem with Obama isn’t that he’s necessarily a better comedian than he is a president — it’s that it’s hard to tell which role he’s playing at any given time.

The funniest part about this Coulter clip with Geraldo is that Al Sharpton thought Obama’s set was funny. But some of Obama’s jokes were mocking people who accuse Obama of being a socialist — and Sharpton is one of them.

From where I sit, those “jokes” would only be funny if Obama was not in fact a socialist, because they would highlight how silly the opposition is for making the claim.

In other words, Obama making jokes about socialism is like Patrick Kennedy making jokes about the people who said he wrecked his car near the Capitol: The jokes only “work” if there was never a car accident.

In any case, most of us would be a little funnier too if we had a team of writers from the Daily Show doing our jokes for us. Take it away, Ann:

    Our daughter graduated from the U of M Flint campus yesterday and we had to sit thru the regurgitated tripe that Zero gave the day before in Ann Arbor. Did you know that after four and five years of college (and the expense) that all these kids have to do is go out and serve their community and provide "social justice" and all will be okay in their lives? Gee, what ever happened to becoming a success, starting a business, providing private sector jobs, etc.

    Although we are very proud of our daughter and her hard work, there is not a job to be found in her field. And she refuses to apply for a guberment job. She'll stay at her bartending job until something comes along or she finally figures out Michigan has nothing to offer and leaves the state.

    Congrats on the graduation! … and she should get combat pay for sitting through that steaming pile of Pelosi that O threw at everybody.

    Probably the most nauseating part (speaking of leaving Michigan) was when Obama praised "Michigan's great governor" — I had no idea John Engler was in the crowd.

    We didn't have to sit thru the Ann Arbor ceremony – we had to sit thru the Flint ceremony – less Obama. But every speaker parroted what he said and the social justice theme was the word of the day. Or go to work for government and make things wonderful for your fellow man. I damned near broke my husband's ribs. I kept poking him – I just wanted to get up and leave. It was shameful. By the way, our daughter was so disgusted by the repeat performance she wanted to get up and walk out. The 60's hippies teaching college did not get to her. Thank God!

    granholm a success? even the unions here despise her. All the liberal joke papers attacked the last republican governor, who was one of the best in the history of the state, and helped get this Canadian (yes, she is Canadian, look it up! ) hard core Progressive into office so she could help trainwreck the state. Entitlements flow while massive cuts hit the State Police. I think even garbage magazines like Time and Newsweek listed her as one of the 3 worst governors in the country. And Obama embraces her….perfect!
