"Surprising Facts About Barack Obama"

[As presented by Democratic Presidential Candidate Sen. Barack Obama on the Thursday, May 1 broadcast of the LATE SHOW with DAVID LETTERMAN, seen weeknights (11:35 PM‑12:37 AM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.]

10. My first act as President will be to stop the fighting between Lauren and Heidi on “The Hills.”

9. In the Illinois primary, I accidentally voted for Kucinich.

8. When I tell my kids to clean their room, I finish with, “I’m Barack Obama and I approved this message.”

7. Throughout high school, I was consistently voted “Barackiest.”

6. Earlier today I bowled a 39.

5. I have cancelled all my appearances the day the “Sex and the City” movie opens.

4. It’s the birthplace of Fred Astaire. (Sorry, that’s a surprising fact about Omaha)

3. We are tirelessly working to get the endorsement of Kentucky Derby favorite Colonel John.

2. This has nothing to do with the Top Ten, but what the heck is up with Paula Abdul?

1. I have not slept since October.

The LATE SHOW with DAVID LETTERMAN is a presentation of Worldwide Pants Incorporated. Barbara Gaines, Maria Pope, Jude Brennan and Rob Burnett are the executive producers.

That was great but where was the Rev. Wright jab that everyone was expecting???

I love Barack!! What a guy!

All the way to the WHITEHOUSE!!!!

Dave Letterman did his corporate master's bidding by trying to rehabilitate Barack Obama after his Reverend (a very learned man--you wouldn't know it the way Barry and Michelle threw the guy under the bus) showed that Black America does in fact carry a grudge--and excercise it where possible---
against professional White Women--like the woman at the national press club Wright picked on mercilessly.
Barry's the flip you off guy who MSNBC adjusted the order and volume of the video and the audio so as to fool people into thinking that he had not indeed flipped off HIllary.
Give me a BREAK!
MSNBC=GE=Nukes=29 New Ones from Cheney's 2005 energy bill.

HEY, GET A LIFE, "Obama ain't who he seems--HOOSIERS DON'T BE FOOLED!"
