A Priest, A Rabbi, And Barack Obama Go Into A Bar...

Want to do an interesting experiment?

Go to David Letterman's website. Go through his archive of monologues. Watch a random sample of his monologues going back to, say, January. See if you can find any gags about Barack Obama.

You'll find tons of Hillary "pants suit" jokes; McCain "old guy" jokes; Bush "dumb guy" jokes; and Clinton "horny guy" jokes. Obama jokes? Hardly a one.

Is Obama not joke-worthy? Or are they tip-toeing for fear of offending?

Looks like the country is ready for a Black president, but show business isn't.
