Here are a few samples of political humor delivered by the late night television hosts, such as David Letterman, Jay Leno, et al…
Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (10/27/09) – “The University of Chicago wants to house the Barack Obama Presidential Library. It will be just like George W. Bush’s library, except it will have books.”
Late Show with David Letterman (10/27/09) – “They say President Barack Obama is playing a lot of golf. He’s played more golf in his few months in office than George Bush played in his eight years. To be fair, Bush played more mini golf.”
The Jay Leno Show (10/16/09) – “Of course, Republicans still can’t believe that Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize. But then Democrats can’t believe that Sarah Palin wrote a book.”
Late Show with David Letterman (10/9/09) – “We’ve come up with No.4 of ‘Things More Fun Than Reading Sarah Palin’s Memoir’: Getting hit by a truck.”
The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien (9/30/09) – “Sarah Palin has finished writing her memoirs, and her publisher says… I wouldn’t read this thing if you put a gun in my mouth.”
Is there a pattern here?
