Bernie Mac makes off-color joke at Obama event
By Associated Press July 12, 2008
CHICAGO (AP) — Comedian Bernie Mac endured some heckling and a campaign rebuke during a surprise appearance Friday night at a fundraiser for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.
Toward the end of a 10-minute standup routine at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Chicago, the 50-year-old star of “The Bernie Mac Show” joked about menopause, sexual infidelity and promiscuity, and used occasional crude language.
“My little nephew came to me and he said, ‘Uncle, what’s the difference between a hypothetical question and a realistic question?'” Mac said. “I said, I don’t know, but I said, ‘Go upstairs and ask your mother if she’d make love to the mailman for $50,000.'”
As the joke continued, the punchline evoked an angry response from at least one person in the audience, who said it was offensive to women.
“It’s not funny. Let’s get Barack on,” a man shouted from the crowd, which paid $2,300 each to support the Illinois senator.
About 15 minutes later, Obama tried to smooth things over with a joke of his own.
“We can’t afford to be divided by race. We can’t afford to be divided by region or by class and we can’t afford to be divided by gender, which by the way, that means, Bernie, you’ve got to clean up your act next time,” Obama said. “This is a family affair. By the way, I’m just messing with you, man.”
The incident drew response from Obama’s campaign, which criticized Mac for his choice of material.
“Sen. Obama told Bernie Mac that he doesn’t condone these statements and believes what was said was inappropriate,” spokeswoman Jen Psaki said in a statement after the event.
It’s quite clear from this that bernie mac’s act is tailored to a large TV audience made up of we of the lower socioeconomic class. The audience that “paid $2,300 each to support the Illinois senator” just don’t get that kind of down home big inner city humor! SONOFABUSH!
The main stream media will play this a different way, but the real issue here is CLASS! The jokes tailored to be funny to the poor, just don’t work with the rich.
First there is the belief among the rich that they are better and above this kind of humor. It doesn’t even matter that bernie mac is very rich. He has clearly not learned to talk rich yet and that’s why he was shouted down. It should however be noted that bernie mac got rich by talkin’ poor!
It’s very telling that flip flop nobama reacted first with a we all good man, then his campaign spokes moron, jen psaki did a bad bernie, BAD!
The syphilitic co-joined twins of the apocalypse have their hands full with these class issues. mcbama has to walk the line between getting the rich to give em big money, and getting everybody else conned into voting for em!
That’s why YOU should walk away from the dems and repubs. You should know by now that if YOU vote mcbama in, they will forget all about us poor folks after the election. They will spend four years paying back the rich pigs that bought them the election!
Support and vote for the only presidential candidate who doesn’t kiss rich ass for campaign contributions!
