Barack Obama, the moral compass of this nation, has lectured/checked another black man. It would seem in his ongoing quest to become the least black president of the United States of America, Mr. Obama has set his sights on cleaning up the comedy circuit. Yes folks, Barack Obama, the candidate of change, has now launched an attack against black comedians.
CHICAGO - Comedian Bernie Mac endured some heckling and a campaign rebuke during a surprise appearance Friday night at a fundraiser for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama. Toward the end of a 10-minute standup routine at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Chicago, the 50-year-old star of "The Bernie Mac Show" joked about menopause, sexual infidelity and promiscuity, and used occasional crude language.
"My little nephew came to me and he said, 'Uncle, what's the difference between a hypothetical question and a realistic question?'" Mac said. "I said, I don't know, but I said, 'Go upstairs and ask your mother if she'd make love to the mailman for $50,000."
As the joke continued, the punchline evoked an angry response from at least one person in the audience, who said it was offensive to women.
"It's not funny. Let's get Barack on," a man shouted from the crowd, which paid $2,300 each to support the Illinois senator.
About 15 minutes later, Obama tried to smooth things over with a joke of his own.
"We can't afford to be divided by race. We can't afford to be divided by region or by class and we can't afford to be divided by gender, which by the way, that means, Bernie, you've got to clean up your act next time," Obama said. "This is a family affair. By the way, I'm just messing with you, man."
The incident drew response from Obama's campaign, which criticized Mac for his choice of material.
"Sen. Obama told Bernie Mac that he doesn't condone these statements and believes what was said was inappropriate," spokeswoman Jen Psaki said in a statement after the event.
Mac, a Chicago native, said he's a longtime Obama supporter and called the presumptive Democratic nominee a "man's man" while offering him advice for the duration of the campaign trail.
"People like rumors. They're going to say things like you was at the club with Lil' Kim, and you and Kanye West got into a fist fight," he said. "You can't get upset. You've got to keep hope alive."
Mac's appearance was Obama's first celebrity event of the evening. Later at a Lincoln Park nightclub, Obama spoke to a raucous crowd of music fans, who paid up to $500 per person to see a performance by Wilco lead singer Jeff Tweedy, and two other band members.
"Before these guys go, I want them to know that I had heard a rumor that they had suggested that I had nothing by them on my iPod," Obama said. "That is not true. I love Wilco."
Now I don't know what the fuck were they thinking inviting a well known black comedian from Chicago, to do a monologue at a fundraiser. Lemme guess, Robert Townsend was too busy? Berinie Mac is a comedian and like all comedians, when on stage, all bets are off. Now I don't know if Bernie was warned or instructed as to the type of material he was supposed to bring to the table (if he was and I were him I'd be insulted), but I personally found the joke hilarious.
But hey, I guess you're not supposed to say filth, flarn flarn filth, in front of uppity negroes. Shit at $2300 a plate you damn sure know that there were no regular "I have a sense of humor" type people there. I'm sorry but after paying $2300 to be at this event, I'd be disappointed in just having Bernie Mac as my entertainment. For that kind of money, they shoulda had a fuckin circus, or maybe even Michael Jackson doing a duet with R.Kelly with a rendition of "The Greatest Love Of All". Hell I dunno, but they got Bernie Mac, and they got what they deserved.
Its pretty obvious that those upiity fuckers have lost the ability to laugh, as their financial portfolio has improved. Lighten up fuckers, stop holding your anal sphincters so tight, its just comedy. Hell, if you're not laughing at a joke its probably because you're not paying attention. You know, like Bernie's comeback to Obama about "Keep hope alive"? That was a reminder to Obama from bernie that like Jesse Jackson, he too is from Chicago, but unlike Jesse, he won't fail at cutting Obama's nuts off. Fuck Obama, that summumabitch! Bernie Mac shoulda buss his head to the white meat. No and not the white grandmamma side of the white meat either. That fool shoulda known better. And why was he at a night club where people paid up to $500 bucks to get in? He sure is a campaigning, get that money type nigga thats for sure, with his hustlin ass.
Who the fuck is Wilco by the way?
