Crass: Obama Jokes That A Pitbull Tastes Better Than Sarah Palin

Everyone's been chuckling over Obama's self-deprecating jokes about eating dogs. I guess they haven't noticed that Obama was also telling a vulgar, not to mention sexually degrading, joke at Sarah Palin's expense

From the Secret Service to the Kardashians, everything was fair game at the annual White House Correspondents' dinner. But the featured item on the menu was dog ... jokes -- which figured, since Barack Obama's old admission to eating dog as a child was just recently revived as a campaign sideshow. "Last week we learned that the president's two favorite steaks are rib eye and seeing eye," cracked comedian Jimmy Kimmel, the evening's host. 
But even Kimmel got a taste that it's tough to work a room better than the Obama himself. The president touched on Sarah Palin's recent hosting of "Today" to segue into the night's toughest line: "What's the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull? A pit bull is delicious."

That, of course, echoes Palin's line from her 2008 convention speech: What's the difference between a hockey mom and a pitbull? Lipstick! (rim shot). Very presidential, making jokes about how a dog "tastes better" than a woman. If you watch the video at the link, you will see that Obama says the word "delicious" with a little too much relish for my taste. Kind of reminds me of the time unofficial anti-bullying czar Dan Savage said he wanted to "f*** the sh** out of Rick Santorum." What a couple of closet cases. (I'll leave you to guess the nature of the closet). 

It goes without saying that you never heard Reagan, Nixon or either of the Bushes making cracks like that. Can you imagine Reagan making sexual jokes about Geraldine Ferraro? Not only would he have been slammed as a chauvinist pig, but people would have wondered why he bothered. His ticket won the 1984 election, after all. Unless I missed something, I wasn't aware that Sarah Palin was running for president, or anything else, this year. 

For all the talk about Obama's "cool," there's no denying that he is also an a**hole.


  1. I'm not sure why some people seem to misunderstand this joke. It's not about Sarah Palin or hockey moms at all. It's simply about eating dogs. He even jokes about soy sauce immediately afterwards. It's not rocket science.

    But I doubt very much that knowing this will change your mind. It's really about having a convenient hate figure, isn't it? He's a Democrat and he's black. And now he eats dogs. If only he were gay and performing abortions ...

  2. You're really grabbing at straws with this post. ( very small thin ones) He said "hockey mom" not "women". and you really don't have to dig too deep on the internets to find many crass comments from Reagan, Nixon and both of the Bushes. Or is it too easy to filter out what you don't want to know. For example, the fact that your rant sounds like the words of a - gasp! - feminist (i.e., liberal)?

  3. sorry folks. Go to the link and watch the video. He mentions Sarah Palin right before the "joke." Sarah Palin describes herself as a hockey mom. And, she told a variation of the hockey mom/pitbull in her first appearance on a national stage. I'm not grasping at anything.

  4. Hey, hey

    and now it looks like we have a China brouhaha where they eat dogs all the time
    Perhaps Hillary could snack on one of those in Obama's stead to placate the angry dog eaters

  5. Psota: Sarah Palin says "I'm as fierce as a pitbull". Obama says, "I eat pitbulls for lunch." That's the whole joke, de-constructed.

    You're welcome :)
