    Here's a clip to the President's laugh-getting presentation
    VIDEO CLIP C-SPAN Video Library Here are some of his best lines:

    "in the next hundred days my bi-partisan outreach will be so successful that even John Boehner will consider becoming a Democrat. After all we have a lot in commen.... He is a person of color....although not a color that appears in the natural world." (big applause)"(he laughs) "What's up John? (asks the pres)"

    "In the next hundred days I will meet with a leader who rules over millions with an iron fist...owns the airwaves and uses that power to crush all that would challenge his authority at the ballot box.....good to see you Mayor Bloomberg..."

    "in the next hundred days I will house train our dog, Muffin...because the last thing Tim Geither needs is someone else treating him like a fire hydrant."

    "In the next hundred days, I will strongly consider losing my cool" (a little restrained laughter)

    "finally I believe that my next hundred days will be so successful that I will complete them in seventy two days....And on the seventy-third day I will rest. (some in the audience show discomfort at that last line with their body language)

    After this he ends by saying some things about the people in the room, the press. (at which point you can click the x-box on the lower left to continue with all remarks leaving the contained clip, and watch how he mildly leans on them)

    It was mostly pretty tame, compared to years past, except for Wendy whassername, who I think was over the top toward the end of her routine. But her best line was about Obama and Biden going to lunch together. "What? Who thought up that plan? Nancy Pelosi?"

    If you mean Wanda Sipes, I actually did find her pretty funny, and she always is. She mentioned the fact that we never see video of the 'pres' smoking cigarettes, but we do get to see him without his shirt on; 'I don't need to see his nipples' she says. [/paraphrase]

    Well... every once and awhile it just all to easy to make someone look like an idiot, and this time it's you....

    ... if he didn't care, he wouldn't have asked.

    See what happens when you're more concerned with being a smart ass than thinking about what you're saying?

    Sorry: correction to earlier the guest commedian was Wanda Sykes (not Sipes)
    If anyone wants to see a side by side here's that humorless President Bush at one of his WHCD's

    Prepare to laugh! GB was prepared to take risks with his image that BO is not.

    Eh, I never really heard people say that bush was "humorless". On the contrary, a lot of people I spoke to seemed to think he didn't take things seriously enough.

    And while I admit he does some good self deprecation here, especially the riffs on his own bushevisms, it does feel like he's trying a bit too hard.
