"I will feast on stupid comments," Kimmel said with glee about his upcoming gig, noting that out on the campaign trail "there seems to be a glut of dumb things being said."
Having said that he was not sure HOW to joke about the President.
"It's hard to make fun of Obama in general because he's a cool character," Kimmel said. "Outside of his ears, there's not a whole lot."
Interestingly enough though he has trouble finding anything to tease the President about he has little difficulty making jokes at the expense of the past, and current, contenders for the GOP nomination. But to be honest, who DOESN'T find them laughable?
And when it comes to poking fun at the biggest joke to come out of the Republican party in decades?
On former candidate for vice president Sarah Palin: "Now she is stationed up in Alaska all the time, she doesn't have a professional hair or makeup artist any more, she is starting to look like a mom on 'Toddlers and Tiaras'. Her hair looks like bees are doing it for her."
Of course I am not sure if that is actually a joke, or just an astute observation?
I have to say I am REALLY looking forward to the White House Correspondents Dinner. These things are always a blast, and the President can be quite the comedian himself.
Of course I would be falling down on the job if I did not provide a link to perhaps the most AMAZING White House Correspondents Dinner of them all. The 2006 dinner hosted by Stephen Colbert.
