    Wasn't it really funny when he made a joke about doing cocaine? I almost forgot that his government prosecutes people for doing exactly that. Humour based on hypocrisy is the best kind.

    Is there a government out there that don't prosecute for cocaine usage?

    He's a better comedian than president unfortunately (though still better than anything the Republicans could have offered).
    Repeal the 27th.

    He has some great writers behind him, and his delivery is superb.

    Brilliant self deprecating humour. Loved the Spielberg "Obama" trailer, especially the President pretending to be Daniel Day Lewis in method actor role. Genius. He was actually funnier than Conan who followed. 10/10

    A thread with that video on it was moved to the zoo by Sync.

    God knows why.
