Obama the Comedian

Barack Obama is many things. President of the United States. Devoted husband and father. Face of the American people. Kenyan-Hawaiin. But, apparently, he has been hiding a hidden skill from us throughout this long journey we've taken with this whitest of black men: a knack for snappy one-liners and a post-politics comedy career.

A few nights ago, Barack Obama brought the house down at the White House Correspondants Dinner. Below is a video. WARNING: 17 minutes long, but full of suprisingly funny political humor.

Don't worry, you can laugh. The Secret Service have cleared this one.
