What, Sinbad wasn't available?

Seems that Bernie Mac mistakenly used material at an Obama fundraiser Friday night in Chicago that would have gone over better at Jokes & Notes.

Barack handled this situation, on the fly, about as smoothly as someone in his position could. It's hard not to like someone that quick and thoughtful on his feet - Barack could have really fronted out Bernie Mac in front of the crowd but instead gently poked him.

But really - what did Barack's handlers expect from the Mac Man? Bernie Mac has never been about family-friendly standup, at least that I know of.

They'd have been better off bringing in Sinbad, who deserves a sort of reward from Obama's campaign for calling HRC on her bullshit earlier this year about that hair-raising trip to Bosnia in 1996.
