Good One

I don't usually do this, but I enjoyed reading Larry King's interview with Chris Rock, and here's the best line:

KING: From a comedic stand point, who is funnier, McCain or Obama? Seriously. Is Obama not -- it's hard to be funny about Obama?

ROCK: No, no. It's weird. People ask me that all the time. ... McCain jokes are just easy jokes, like I don't want a president with a bucket list. That's like a McCain joke. Those jokes are easy. It's like you basically, you know, you know, take the dust off your Reagan jokes and tell them again. You know? But Obama, oh, this is a whole new set of jokes. I got to find a whole new move to the basket here. So I kind of hope he wins.

Interesting insight into a comedian's life, I thought. Rock also made this point: "The choice is you got a guy that's worth $150 million with 12 houses against a guy who's worth a million dollars with one house. . . . The guy with one house really cares about losing a house, because he is homeless. The other guy can lose five houses and still got a bunch of houses. Does this make any sense? Am I the only one that sees this?"

Share and enjoy.

Chris Rock ... one of the 96% of Blacks voting for Obama, ... and, he's also a celebrity ... What a surprise that he's in the tank for Obama.
