He Can Make the Sick Laugh

“In the next hundred days our bipartisan outreach will be so successful that even John Boehner will consider becoming a Democrat. After all we have a lot in common. He is a person of color--although not a color that appears in the natural world.”
-President Barack Obama-

As sick as I was yesterday and oh god, I was sick, (probably food poinsoning) when I watched a rerun of the President speaking at the correspondents dinner, the above quote made me laugh until I cried.

One of my other favorite lines was when he said, “In the next hundred days I will strongly consider losing my cool.”

I don’t know who wrote his material, but I thought it was great, along with his delivery. One more reason to be so damned proud of that vote I cast last November.

Hope you're feeling better soon, PoP.

I hadn't watched the president's routine. Those are good lines.

Obama did a great job. He was very funny and charming. I also loved that he spoke about the dire straits of journalism. Very serious matter confronting our democracy.

Hope you are feeling better today.

He was great - just finished watching it over at Fran's "Ramblings." I thought he was hilarious.

I hope you are feeling better soon.

Isn't it so nice to once again have someone intelligent in the White House?

Thank God!
