Comedian-in-Chief: What's with the Candidates and Comedy Shows

Every time you look up a presidential candidate is on a comedy program. Are we electing a president or a comedian. Being a politician is serious business nowadays. So they should be concentrating on solving the ever growing problems that face our society and world. They should not be spending so much time self-promoting on comedic shows. The reason they are on these programs is because their handlers have told them that it's a good idea to connect with the Youtube generation. But lets face it, the reason they make so many appearances on these programs is that they are clowns after all. We don't take them seriously so why should they:

John McCain is 71 years old, and his age has provided late-night comics with some easy punch lines. On "Saturday Night Live," he joined in.

"I ask you, what should we be looking for in our next president?" McCain said. "Certainly, someone who is very, very, very old."

The certain Republican presidential nominee appeared in a phony campaign ad in which he promised to put an end to runaway government spending, claiming he had never sought money for his home state, Arizona.

"Controlling government spending isn't just about Republicans or Democrats," he said. "It's about being able to look your children in the eye. Or in my case, my children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-great-grandchildren and great-great-great-grandchildren, the youngest of whom are nearing retirement."

"I have the courage, the wisdom, the experience and, most importantly, the oldness necessary," McCain said. "The oldness it takes to protect America, to honor her, love her and tell her about what cute things the cat did."
