Jimmy Kimmel on Sarah Palin.

Kimmel is about to host the White House Correspondents Dinner this Saturday and was answering some questions about his approach to the challenge.

"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?

 Yep, 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.

    "On Glenn Beck's radio show yesterday, Sarah Palin accidentally said, 'We have to stand with our North Korean allies.' Then Palin was like, 'Wait. North Korea's the one in the south, right?'" - Jimmy Fallon

    "A new study says that radiation from Wi-Fi is hurting trees. Environmentalists are calling it the worst assault on trees since George W. Bush and Sarah Palin became authors." - Jimmy Fallon

    "Palin's book just came out. It has just over 300 pages and just under 900 made-up words." - Jimmy Fallon

    "Sarah Palin's new autobiography doesn't come out until November, but it is already number one on Amazon. And if you go to the website, it says, 'People who bought this book also bought no other books in their entire life.'" - Jimmy Fallon
    "The book costs $24.99, but it has a $5,000 jacket." -Jimmy Fallon

    "Sarah Palin's 400-page memoir is going to be released on November 17th, and it's called 'Going Rogue: An American Life.' And critics say that it starts out okay, it gets really exciting and then confusing, and then the last 100 pages are blank." - Jimmy Fallon

    I know that Jimmy has plenty of material. I wonder if Sarah or Bristol are on the guest list this year. Maybe someone should bring Levi as a date.

    Gryphen, agree, the Stephen Colbert dinner will never be topped. Do you remember how it got panned by the critics - most of whom were attendees at the dinner? I can't remember who said this about the criticism, but they made an astute observation: "You had to not be there to get it."

  9. Gryph, I remember that Stephen was panned after the correspondents dinner because the morons did not understand his brilliant satire of them. Just like he does every night on his show. That's why he won the Peabody recently for his take on PACs. As to Kimmel, he is bang-on abour Sarah, but of, course, we knew that she is looking like a typical reality show creature for a long time. Glad to see that others are aware.

    BTW, tonight on LOD, he will be playing the video of the Santorum Aborts Campaign video. LOL.

    "Last night was possibly the last show ever of 'Sarah Palin's Alaska,' for several reasons. She might run for President and would have to abide by the equal time rules. Also, she just likes to quit things." —Jimmy Kimmel

    "Three finalists on 'Dancing with the Stars,' two of whom can dance and Bristol Palin who cannot, but her mother has an army of Eskimo robots calling in votes day and night. The Palins dream of a future in which no one will ever be disqualified from a job simply because they are unable to perform that job." –Jimmy Kimmel

    "Sarah Palin's book is number one on Amazon.com right now. Stephen King actually has the number two book. Very scary new book called 'Sarah Palin Becomes President.'" - Jimmy Kimmel

    Of course, Sarah is going to say she doesn't give it a thought, she lives this [crucification by lamestream lefty hollywood media types] everyday, but she'll have her lobster hands clawed up and pawing the air like a puppy. Her tongue darting inside and out. Having Track and Bristol Google facts about Jimmy so she can try and joke about him eating dog as a child.

    Her refudiation of Kimmel's jokes are going to be as cringe-worthy as her Gibson/Couric interviews.

    Peter King Says Three More Employees Out


    WASHINGTON — Three more Secret Service employees have been forced out of the government, bringing to nine the number of people who have lost their jobs in the prostitution scandal roiling the agency. President Barack Obama said the employees at the center of the sordid episode were "knuckleheads," but not representative of the agency that protects his family in the glare of public life.

    Obama acknowledged Tuesday that the scandal was "a little distracting" and pressed for perspective.

    "These guys are incredible. They protect me. They protect Michelle. They protect the girls. They protect our officials all around the world," the president said on NBC's "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon."

    "A couple of knuckleheads shouldn't detract from what they do," Obama added. "What these guys were thinking, I don't know. That's why they're not there anymore."

      So nine have been kicked out of their jobs this week. How long did it take Bush to do ANYTHING when AbuGraib broke, when Brown screwed up Katrina, when any scandal came to light? The GOP whines ablout accountability, which they know nothing about, while this adminstration holds people accountable, and quickly.

    Palin is the ultimate political strip-tease... don't forget sex addicts who doesn't know when to wear a raincoat.

    Tease Bristol is out there dry humping on national tv, telling her son's future friends how she conceived Tripp in a canvas tent with her friends listening outside, televising her trial marriage to Sadie Johnston's rejects, having a statue of her chon chon displayed for all to see in front of Wasilla High School....

    What do you expect from that family?

    Tradition means a lot to the Palins:

    Sally Heath impregnated before marriage.
    Sarah Heath impregnated before marriage.
    Bristol Palin impregnated several times before marriage.
    Willow Palin is said to have her own pregnancy scares and may be with child and forced to get engaged before getting her GED.
    Track impregnated a pastor's daughter before marriage and forced her to have a roadside marriage in the snow because she wasn't pure enough to be married in her father's church.

    They aint through folks, there's more Palins to follow their Palin Christian Family Values Breeding tradition. Should be a doozie seeing that they have good examples to follow.
