Republicans, Need a Minority To Love? Try President Obama


If President Obama is unsure what to do with himself once he leaves office, he can always do standup. The man is just funny.

But of all the lines he delivered at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner (and he made sure to get his licks in with a razor), the hands-down keeper was when he suggested that if the Republicans were really sincere about their new outreach efforts to attract more minorities, perhaps they might want to do a “test run” by reaching out to the President of the United States.

Video of Obama on the GOP’s minority outreach:

“Hello…?”

Usually it’s not a good idea to break down the anatomy of a joke, but in this instance I think it’s warranted. And when you break it down it’s really pretty simple; this joke was funny because it was so blatantly true and in-your-face. It was one of those things that had to even force the Republicans in the room to ask themselves, “Damn, why didn’t we  think of that?”

There’s an answer to that question, and it’s why Obama was the one telling the jokes tonight, and not a Republican.
