Let's Not Misunderestimate This One

And before we finally say goodbye to George W. Bush, I just thought this video really said it all. If there's anything I'm going to miss about this guy, it's that he gave quite a few laughs and knew how to laugh at himself too.

As for future jokes about the new President? Don't count on it. Even comedians are finding it hard to say something about Obama.
Chris Rock on why he can't make fun of Obama: "He's (Obama) just one of those guys, you know. There's no Brad Pitt jokes. You know, what are you going to say? "Ooh, you used to have sex with Jennifer Aniston. Now you have sex with Angelina Jolie. You're such a loser." What do you say? "Ooh, your movies are big. You make $20 million." There's nothing to say about Brad Pitt ...

It's like "Ooh, you're young and virile and you've got a beautiful wife and kids. You're the first African-American president." You know, what do you say?
Jokes or no jokes, I wish the new President all the luck. Because with the amount of hype this guy's got, no matter what he does, he'll have his naysayers. I personally just want to see Sasha and Malia have a great time at the White House. Who's watching the Inauguration with me (aka: staying up tonight, Manila time)?
