Obama via satellite

Senator Barack Obama did appear on "The Daily Show" last night, but via satellite from Washington. Obama was having a good time—his broad smile threatened to split his head open. Jon Stewart cracked him up, and he cracked Jon up. The good senator is a funny man—who knew? You can either catch one of the reruns today, or read about their conversation here.

Obama was very funny. I especially liked the line (and I'm paraphrasing here) that the only person more hyped than himself was Stewart. Besides being funny, I liked that he seems to be really trying not to believe the hype.

I don't know which I liked better -- the "fire the bus driver" comment or the "only person more overhyped than me is you." That was seven minutes of brilliance.

Then there was the part where Obama said his wife loves "The Daily Show," and his 4-year-old is also a Jon Stewart fan because he hosted "Elmopalooza." (It's true. We rented "Elmopalooza" one time.)
