The joke is finally on Barack Obama

US Election 2008: The joke is finally on Barack Obama - Telegraph UK
Have you heard the one about the presidential candidate who was once so popular that comedians were frightened to make jokes about him? The punchline is this: the more seriously he took himself, the more Barack Obama has become a laughing matter. Only a month ago American comedians and satirists were complaining that they found it hard to get people to laugh at the first black presidential nominee
