- On a purely objective basis, Johnny Mac is funnier than Obama. (Obama is wittier, which is different.)
- Cindy McCain is a hell of a good sport.

Nixon, who nobody thinks of as funny, appeared on Laugh-In, which I hope I won't insult by describing it as the Saturday Night Live of its day; LBJ, a scabrously funny man in private (LBJ on lobbyists: "...if you can't eat their steak, drink their whiskey, [enjoy carnal knowledge of] their women and vote against 'em the next morning, you have no business in this business") wouldn't have done it in a million years.
