Political Humor: The Friday Funnies


   This has been what I consider a bad week for the Democrats, which I think also makes it a bad week for the citizens of America.

  As you all know, the Republicans in the United States Senate held America hostage over those tax cuts for their wealthy friends and corporations by refusing to extend unemployment benefits for the millions of you who have not been able to find a job which would maybe pay you enough to cover your living expenses.

   President Obama grew into one of those Republicants by accepting as few crumbs for both you and myself,which will do none of us any good over the long haul. He did succeed in helping his Republicant Party in adding close to a trillion dollars to our already massive deficit.     Time for a few political jokes.

Conan O'Brien:

"Today President Obama met with a group of top CEOs to discuss creating new jobs. They said they'd see what they could do and then all went back to China."

"Someone apparently found an old Internet dating profile posted by WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, and it has been posted online. Assange was furious, saying 'Some things are supposed to be private.'"

Jay Leno:

"Two feet of snow in the Midwest. But the good news is, these are the first shovel-ready jobs Obama has come up with since becoming president."

"Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has been named Time magazine's Person of the Year. They said he has single-handedly changed the way we waste time at work."

''We all know there is a long tradition of great nations importing foreign workers to do their farm work. After all, it was the ancient Israelites who built the first food pyramids. ... But this is America. I don't want a tomato picked by a Mexican. I want it picked by an American. Then sliced by a Guatemalan, and served by a Venezuelan in a spa where a Chilean gives me a Brazilian.'' —Stephen Colbert, testifying before Congress on behalf of the United Farm Workers Union, which was pushing an agriculture jobs bill to give illegal immigrant farm workers a path to citizenship

''Say what you want, it's great branding. Way better than CNN's 'If You're Watching This, Your Flight's Been Canceled.'' —Jon Stewart on Fox News' ''Fair and Balanced'' slogan
