View Full Version : Elections Late-Night Comics Skewer Republicans 7-to-1, Study Finds

John McCain is slated to return to "Late Show With David Letterman" Thursday night, but should the onetime media favorite be preparing for an ambush?

A study shows the Kings of Late Night are not equal-opportunity destroyers this year when it comes to telling jokes about the candidates for president and vice president -- they're hammering Republicans a stunning seven times more often than they skewer Democrats.

The Center for Media and Public Affairs, a media analysis group, kept a tally of jokes told about the presidential contenders on the "Late Show" and "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno" in the five weeks after McCain chose Sarah Palin to be his running mate and vaulted the little-known Alaska governor into the national spotlight.

The total: Republicans, 286. Democrats, 42.

"Generally the Republicans get targeted much more often than Democrats, but this election is driving it off the charts," said CMPA Executive Director Donald Rieck.

Letterman and Leno told 106 jokes about McCain and 180 about Palin in the 25 shows that aired between Aug. 29, when McCain chose her, and Oct. 2, the date of the vice presidential debate.



Barack Obama, who may be Leno's guest next week, was targeted only 26 times -- barely once a night. His gaffe-prone running mate, Joe Biden, who is scheduled to appear on Leno Thursday night, was hit only 16 times, not even one-tenth the number of jokes told about Palin over the five-week period.

McCain's date with Letterman Thursday comes weeks after he canceled a scheduled appearance in September that left the late-night comedian hopping mad.

The Republican candidate canceled his appearance so he could go to Washington to deal with the economic crisis. While recording his show, Letterman learned that McCain was still in New York, doing an interview on the CBS Evening News, and he spent much of his show skewering the Republican who stood him up.

Palin also has taken a big hit from the late-night comedians -- and from Saturday Night Live, where Tina Fey's parody of the vice presidential candidate has skyrocketed the show's ratings. It is rumored that Palin will make an appearance on SNL on Oct. 25.

"Palin's just a bonanza for these guys," said Rieck. "You have a woman who shoots wolves from a helicopter; whether she's a Democrat or Republican, that's just a bonanza. Biden's kind of boring compared to that, isn't he?"

Obama is almost as boring to comedians as Biden, said Robert Thompson, director of the Center for the Study of Popular Television at Syracuse University.

"He is kind of a comedian's worst nightmare," Thompson said. "He doesn't do anything. He doesn't fall down like Gerald Ford did. He's not filled with scandal and isn't a sexual player like Clinton was. He doesn't misspell words like Dan Quayle did.

"The size of his ears is about all they have to work with."
Tim Graham, director of media analysis for Media Research Center, a conservative watchdog group, said the comedians' tendency to avoid mocking Obama comes from a fear of being called racist.

"There is a racial minefield that they're trying to avoid," Graham said. "I think they see Obama as a historic figure, and because he's a historic figure it's like making jokes about Martin Luther King."

Palin, like President Bush, has been pegged as dumb by the comedians, Graham said.

"All of the prejudices that the liberal media elite have towards the hockey mom from Alaska are clearly coming through with these New York-based and LA-based comedians, probably as strong as or more strongly than they're coming across in the news media," he said.

Should Obama win the presidency, his get-out-of-jokes-free card from the late-night comedians will expire, said Thompson, leaving him just as vulnerable as McCain and Palin have been during the election.

"He is by no means a comedian's dream-come-true the way Bill Clinton was," he said. "But you can't be in that office without delivering material people can work with.

"I am convinced that when comedians die and go to heaven, Bill Clinton is still president. When Monica Lewinsky came along, the jokes wrote themselves."

Seven to one? I thought that it would be way higher than that. I would have guessed that it was more along the lines of nine or more to one. I mean who even likes Republicans anymore? We know that the Democrats and Liberals do not like them. Conservatives do not even like them anymore. The only people who actually like Republicans are Republicans.

It's not "Hollyweird," it's THE FUNDAMENTAL DYNAMIC OF THE SITUATION. Republicans are the Rich White Dude party. The rich were getting skewered in the earliest days of <strike>this country</strike> human civilization, and people were mocking the power brokers in America before there was a United States.

And when an eccentric rich white dude from the Rich White Dude party starts running around the country with a borderline retarded Alaskan woman? Yeah, fancy jokes being told about them.

No surprise there. Bush and Palin alone both supply huge material. Not to mention that Republican candidates generally tend to seem humorless, Huckaby being an obvious exception. It's easy to make fun of humorless people.

But nothing will ever top Clinton. Every demographic got it, from 12 year old boys on up.

UP is correct. Look back at the depression, for instance. The Marx Brothers made a living by poking fun at the rich. It was the underlying theme of virually every movie. For years one of the main co-stars was Margaret Dumont, whose only purpose was to play the rich, humorless and self-centered dowager.

From what I know, it's been the same for at least the past 600 or so years.

The Clintons made it easy; of course, as President....before the Lewinsky affair, many if not most of the jokes were along the lines of him NOT being liberal/or liberal enough for that crowd. Name another Democrat that has garnered the same "material" from Hollyweird. Other than Kerry (deserved it) I can't think of any that come close.

It's not just Hollywood, though. The rich and the ruling class have been poked fun at for as long as people have been poking fun. Republicans are the party of the rich and the judgmental by virtue of Wall Street and the RR. It's the comedic equivalent of putting a kick me sign on your back, or putting a banana peel, a ladder and a bucket of water in your path.

I'm not disputing that; I'm suggesting during the last 40 years, the criticism has been clearly one-sided....much more so than "history" (long-term) would suggest it would be.

Also, in the case of John McCain, his own words have provided a lot of ammunition when it comes to his bomb bomb bomb first and ask ask ask questions later approach to diplomacy. That said, which comic called him a war monger?

Letterman has always treated McCain with a lot of respect. The way McCain bailed on Letterman and basically lied to him about it was disrespectful. It's probably going to cost McCain some of Letterman's good will for a while. And I can't say as I blame him.

Have you ever seen the FX show "Sons of Anarchy"?

Last week, there was a scene where an excommunicated member needed to be somewhere they were. They voted to let him come, but someone saw he hadn't removed the tatoo from his back.....they pretended to be nice to him, brought him back to the clubhouse and gave him a couple of drinks. They lured him to the shop to "see a new bike".....and then chained him to the engine hoist, pulled off his shirt and asked him to choose between "knife or fire" to remove the entire back-tat.

He chose fire and they lit a torch, poured grain alcohol on his back and went to work.


Letterman tripped McCain in front of the sofa, had fat guys hold him down, and didn't give him a choice before lighting the torch and dumping the Everclear.

It was not even an attempt at being funny, he was a hostile, unprofessional prick about it......and he did have a TKO.....then after an extended break, gave it to him again.

Politicians are ripe for satire but comedians are going for the easy because they're lazy and unimaginative. SNL is the pinnacle of that. Oh look, another age joke about McCain, how f'ing original. Oh look, a bumpkin joke about Palin, how f'ing original.

When did he say that? If true, that's pretty bad for someone who is supposed to be a Constitutional scholar. The left uses the "out-of-date" theme because it puts barriers in their way to realizing their agenda to change us into a third world socialist state.

Ha. He's talking about Hammurabi's code the earliest known set of "legal principles" from @ the 22nd century BC., nice try though. The little soundbyte doesn't mention the Constitution.

I mean Bush used to commit a major speaking gaffe every day. People made money selling calendars of them, and I guess that underscores the need to reach for stuff like this.

"The President held a press conference tonight in prime time. All the major networks carried it, except Fox. They ran the show 'Lie to Me' instead. Fox is something -- they killed President David Palmer off on '24,' they put his brother, President Wayne Palmer, into a permanent coma and now this. What does Fox have against black Presidents?” --Jimmy Kimmel

“Today marks 100 days of President Obama being in office, which is a big deal because 100 days is when his warranty runs out. We couldn’t return him now even if we wanted to.” --Jimmy Kimmel

"President Barack Obama told his Cabinet yesterday to insure that every taxpayer dollar is spent wisely. But there was one embarrassing moment when he had to explain to the Cabinet what a taxpayer was." --Jay Leno

"President Obama should get a big refund this year because he has a lot of dependents. AIG, Citibank, Morgan Stanley -- all dependents." --Jay Leno

"Barack Obama's daughters are very smart. They told him they will take the same responsibility for the dog that he is taking for the economy. That way, if the dog leaves a mess in the White House, it'll be cleaned up by future generations." --Jay Leno

"Well, the wait is over. The Obamas have chosen a new White House dog. It is a Portuguese water dog named Bo. Very cute dog. Their first choice was a wheaten terrier, but it was arrested for tax evasion." --Jimmy Fallon

"President Obama made a surprise visit to Iraq this week where he declared it is time for Iraqis to take responsibility for their country. Said Iraqis, 'You guys first.'" --Seth Meyers

"So they gave the Queen an iPod. I remember when British Prime Minister Gordon Brown was here, the Obamas gave him a DVD box set. So, it looks like they're saving the big gift, the Nintendo, for the Pope." --Jay Leno

"As you know by now, the government is now taking an active role in the auto business. President Obama offering hope, change, and 0 percent financing." --Jay Leno

"It's a great day for our president, Barack Obama, who got to meet the Queen of England today. She very regally gave him a photograph of her, and he gave her an iPod! That's quite an unusual gift from the President. Usually he gives out about $150 million." --Craig Ferguson

"President Obama, by the way, is, I think, making his first presidential European trip. And while he's there in Europe, he plans to fire the CEO's of BMW and Volkswagen." --David Letterman

"Big day in Detroit. You may have heard about this. The Obama Administration asked General Motors C.E.O. Rick Wagoner to step down, and he agreed, which is good news for Obama. You know, the last time he tried to get someone to quit, it took months. And even then, he had to promise her a job as Secretary of State." --Jay Leno

"And in a speech in Anchorage, Alaska, Sarah Palin took kind of a cheap shot at her former running mate, John McCain. She said she couldn't find anyone to pray with during the campaign. She's not the only one. Between Jesse Jackson and Reverend Wright, Obama couldn't find anybody to pray with either." --Jay Leno

"Today, President Obama announced he is using his own money to redecorate the White House. Meanwhile, he is using taxpayers' money to redecorate the houses of A.I.G. executives." --Craig Ferguson

"Barack Obama is taking his first overseas trip as president tomorrow. He is headed to the G20 economic summit. And he's been rehearsing his opening line to foreign leaders. 'Hi, I'm not George Bush. Hi, I'm not George Bush.'" --Jimmy Fallon

"President Obama has announced a task force to review the tax codes. He's concerned there are too many loopholes and too many people manipulating the system to avoid paying taxes. And that's just in his administration." --Jay Leno

"How many watched the President's news conference last night? He got a little testy there, you know. When he was asked why he waited three days to speak out against the AIG bonuses, President Obama said he likes to know what he's talking about before he speaks. So, yet another reversal of the Bush policies." --Jay Leno

"Many people are complaining, though, that Obama is becoming too scripted. Last night, he was having an intimate moment with Michelle, and she said, 'Wait, are you reading the teleprompter?'" --Jimmy Fallon

"On '60 Minutes' the other night, if you saw the interview, reporter Steve Croft asked President Obama how he could laugh with all the financial trouble going on. And the President said it's necessary to have a measure of 'gallows humor to get you through the day.' You know why Obama likes gallows humor? It works much better for him than bowling humor." --Jay Leno

"After Barack Obama was on the show Thursday, I got a phone call from Joe Biden going, 'Wow, what was it like to talk to the President?'" --Jay Leno

"Did you see this on '60 Minutes' last night? Michelle Obama is planting a vegetable garden on the White House lawn. You know the economy's bad when the Obamas are afraid of running out of food." --Jimmy Fallon

"This morning, the first lady, Michelle Obama, celebrated spring by breaking ground on a new vegetable garden at the White House. She said she did it to help educate children about healthy, locally-grown food, and to help her own family survive the coming economic apocalypse." --Jimmy Kimmel

"We are very excited to have President Barack Obama on the show tonight. People think it's amazing that the President would take the time to leave Washington, DC, and fly 3,000 miles to come to California. But that happens to a lot of guys when their mother-in-law moves in with them." --Jay Leno

Wow, he specifically singled out her 14 year old daughter?
No, he didn't. He was actually referring to her 18-year-old daughter, the one who made the news for getting knocked up. But he had confused which daughter had actually accompanied Palin on her trip to New York (or, at least, his joke writer confused the two), so to anyone who knew it was actually the 14-year-old who came to New York, it sounded as if he was talking about her. Honest mistake, I'd say, and Letterman clarified it a few days later once he became aware of the controversy.

This shows how powerful media is. Bush didn't flub nearly as many lines as perceived. I'm not saying he didn't flub lines, just that it wasn't nearly as bad as people perceive. That perception is easy to have when every time he did flub a line it was repeated constantly and continually on every news broadcast like it was actually big news.
