Late Night Crickets

What's so unfunny? Political comedians and their 'hero worship' of Obama.

Not only do late night comics NOT make fun of the target-rich environment that is our teleprompter President because they share his manifesto for America, they are still stuck on Bush/Cheney. It's actually rather sad.

DISCLAIMER: This video is a representative sample of David Lettermen "performing" patently unfunny material. Nothing to see here. Maybe this is why I haven't watched him in 30-some years.

DAVID LETTERMAN: What really can you say wrong about the determined new president?

JAY LENO: Today was President Obama's 100th day in office. Isn't that amazing? Actually, when you think about it, George W. Bush was president for eight years, and he never came close to spending 100 days in the office. So, we're way ahead.

CRICKETS: Chirp, chirp, chirp.


  1. It's so sad. I used to love Letterman until he went totally wacky. To me, he went over the top when Hillary decided to run for the Senate and he had her on his show then slobbered all over her. I haven't paid any attention to him since. When you think about it the Simpsons is about the fairest as far as slamming both sides plus they go to church-almost unheard of in TV shows today.

  2. I'm with Pic-Pic, I've long since written off both Letterman and Leno

  3. Makes me think back to the Clinton era. Sure they had a great time making fun of the Lewinski affair...but it always had a "way to go dude" flavor.

  4. I haven't had any use for Leno or Letterman for years. I didn't have any use for them when they were dumping on President Bush every night either.

  5. It's just as well. I don't stay up past 9 or 10 these days anyways.

  6. These days ? You've been "checking out early" since the Myrtle Beach days...

  7. I hear Leno dump on Obama too, even on matter I had not thought of before.

    But Letterman: He is "hard left". They should replace him with Craig Fergason.
