Jon Stewart on Obama: ‘You Opened With I Killed Bin Laden?!’

Posted by on Jan 26, 2012 at 7:46 am

Man, is this tool beating the dead bin Laden card to death or what? Even a liberal sycophant like Jon Stewart has had enough. Really, the guy had be dragged kicking and screaming to get the deal done while he was out golfing, and he walks around like he made the kill shot himself.

Stewart began at the beginning: the opening of the speech that celebrated the death of Bin Laden. “You open with ‘I killed Bin Laden’?” Stewart asked, incredulous. “Does Rick Springfield open with ‘Jessie’s Girl’?”

After a few words about how wonderful Rick Springfield concerts are, he noted that the President promised quite a number tax credits to various people. “He’s like tax credit Oprah!” Stewart joked. “You get a tax credit! And you get a tax credit!” And then there was the spilt milk joke. “As someone who does comedy for a living: been there,” Stewart told Obama. “And the worst part isn’t the crowd’s reaction: it’s the wife’s.”

    Well, dang it all, if the man had to leave a good golf game to get this done, I can see why he wants to make sure he gets credit for that sacrifice.

    Stewart made me laugh for the first time in a decade. But with that kind of material, The Jersey Shore could have gotten a laugh.

    I think the point of Stewart’s joke was you don’t open with your best material. So he’s not tired of Obama spiking the Bin Laden football, he’s saying Obama should be using it to better effect.

    @Cybersherpa: Obama doesn’t have any better material though. His only accomplishment in three years is killing OBL.

    And there it is. I’ve been asking the GOP for years now what they’ve got that’s better than, “Free stuff!” and Jon Stewart rightly guesses it at the end.

    Problem is, we’re not gettin’ laid so much as we’re gettin’ screwed.
