David Letterman and Jay Leno are going to be out of a job with this president!

Did you see Obama at the "neighborhood ball"? His observation that "neighborhood starts with the word neighbor" was brilliant! If that came out of Bush's mouth, they would be already making jokes about how stupid he is! Too bad it's a sin to make fun of Obama on national television.

I'm so glad to see the end of Letterman's endless top 10 with Bush featured!! Chris Rock has already said that he can't make fun of Obama. "There's nothing there to poke fun at." Um, yeah there is you just WON'T.

They will still make Bush jokes.  Im thinking they won't be making any obama jokes unless he says something really dumb but he said a lot of really dumb things during the election and they didn't.  It's probably going to be easier for them to make fun of biden.

Ah...the ways we could focus on media hypocrisy on display for us to view. I think after the manic state of Obama mania dies down I could almost see Leno crack some jokes on our new president, Letterman though?...I can't see him making attempts at those jokes. Michelle...please don't subscribe to Time I hate to see rags like that get more of our hard earned dollars. I like to boycott things with my money (I still can't buy Heinz ketchup).

I only watched long enough to see Michelle Obama's dress (hideous!), so I missed his speaking.  But I, too, am curious to see how late night television handles Obama - more than likely with kid gloves.  I'm almost tempted, too, to subscribe to Time magazine again -  to see how different their reporting of Obama is from how they've skewered Bush for eight years.
