Pity the poor comedians, Part III

In today's NY Times' excerpts from the best the late night TV hosts had to offer this week, they quote this witticism from Jay Leno:

"President Bush said today he often turned to prayer during his presidency. Hey, I think we all turned to prayer."

Way to go, Jay. Great joke. Keep putting the screws to Bush. At this rate, sooner or later you're going to succeed in driving him from office.

But always remember, Obama is off limits. If you make a joke about him, people might think you're racist. You can't take that risk.

And as we all know, a truly funny comedian never risks offending anyone.

Bush hating is so yesterday. Leno needs new material.

He has new material. He just won't use it, because he's so pc.
