Conservative commentator Monica Crowley, however, said she has generally heard from comedians that they find little fun in Obama. She can’t wait to see how things will work out once Obama moves into the White House, she added.
Will comedians be able to make Obama jokes?, MSNBC, November 6, 2008
Remember when there was actually a discussion that comedians would not find anything about Obama to make fun of...?
Obama vs Netanyahu is only one of the latest episodes to provide comedians with an opportunity to poke fun at the President.
First there was this:
Netanyahu Urges U.S. Return to 1845 BordersAnd now it's only getting worse:
Israeli PM calls for “just solution” to end the conflict.
Aboard Air Force Aleph (Reuters) – Speaking to reporters accompanying Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on his long flight to the United States tonight, Netanyahu spoke of the injustice and hardship Mexicans have endured since American forces annexed Texas in 1845. “Tens of thousands of ordinary Mexicans were driven out of their homes – the only homes they had known for centuries - and forced to live in poverty and squalor south of the border imposed by American aggression,” Netanyahu said. “The Israeli and Mexican people agree on this: This festering wound will never heal until America takes bold steps to return to the internationally accepted lines of 1845. Clearly the settlement activity that’s taken place occupied Mexico since then is illegal. When I meet the President tomorrow I will tell him to halt all building activity in Texas immediately. Two lands for two peoples, yes, but not on land taken by force from Mexico,” the Prime Minister said.
Asked if his hard-line stance could hurt the U.S.-Israel relationship, Netanyahu reiterated Israel’s commitment to America’s security and the unshakeable friendship shared by the two countries, then added, “But who was it who said, part of friendship is being able to tell your friend the truth. The ball is now in Obama’s court.”

But nobody beats Dry Bones:
I've heard that Jay Leno has had some one liners about this as well:
- Obama wants Israel to go back to pre-1967 borders. Now Native Americans are demanding Obama go back to pre-1492 borders
- President Obama told the Irish people that America will always stand by them, to which Israel laughed.
- Obama was also in England, where the queen suggested that we go back to the pre-1776 borders.
