Line of the week

I'm not normally a big Jay Leno fan - his humor seems stuck in 1992 - but tonight he got off a really terrific line about the President:

"After saying the jobs bill is paid for, President Obama now says that it will be paid for by raising taxes over 10 years. I can’t figure out if he’s the kind of guy who makes infomercials, or the kind of guy who falls for infomercials."

It was said back in the '70s that people really knew Nixon was in trouble when Johnny Carson started making fun of him. I think it still holds true, and probably even more so for a Democrat: When Hollywood lefties like Leno think you're a buffoon, you're probably in big trouble.

  1. I think back in the '70's it was said that Nixon was in trouble when Carson stopped making fun of him, i.e., it became so pathetic it was no longer sporting. In the case of a democrat, the opposite is true since having fun at "the one's" expense is close to heresy in the church of liberalism.
