Barack Obama: A joke that's an oldie but still a goodie! (Bonus SOTU caption contest)

(Enter the caption contest in the comments section below)

And any kind of humor is very much needed after last nights State of the Union Address!

But first, for anyone who played along with the SOTU cliche game, did you pick the correct first one of the speech and if you did what was it?

As for this joke we had to dig deep in the archives (actually a friend of mine emailed it to me yesterday), but it is still very funny in a very sad sort of way.

The Marine and the terrorist

A Marine squad was marching north of Fallujah when they came upon an Iraqi terrorist who was badly injured and unconscious.

On the opposite side of the road was an American Marine in a similar but less serious state.

The Marine was conscious and alert and as first-aid was given to both men, the squad leader asked the injured Marine what had happened.

The Marine reported, I was heavily armed and moving north along the highway here, and coming south was a heavily armed insurgent. We saw each other and both took cover in the ditches along the road.

I yelled to him that Saddam Hussein was a miserable, lowlife scumbag who got what he deserved.

And he yelled back that Barack Obama is a lying, good-for-nothing, left wing Commie who isn't even an American.

So I said that Osama Bin Laden dressed and acts like a frigid, mean-spirited lesbian!

He retaliated by yelling, Oh yeah? Well, so does Nancy Pelosi!

And, there we were, in the middle of the road, shaking hands, when a truck hit us.
